An early morning departure from Kuwait.
Turbulence on the way to Amman, Jordan.
A car ride to the Jordanian border with a stop for water on the way.
A bus ride to the Israeli border and by 1:00 p.m. we were in Jerusalem.
The reason for my week long break.
There were no hotel rooms available because May 1st was Orthodox Easter so there were many visitors to the Old City.
We stayed with my husband's 78 year old aunt who is blind and one tough cookie.
It wound up being the best thing since the purpose for our visit was to spend time with family.
We did a lot of visiting.
They always make sure to have vegetarian and vegan options just for me.
We had a wonderful trip.
We weren't tourists this time so most of my pictures are family related.
Everyone always goes out of their way for us. Leaving was just a bit harder than it was last year when we were there with my boss and his wife.
Over the next several days I'll share more pictures of how our time was spent.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
