For those who guessed Jerusalem, Palestine, you are correct.
On September 22nd we traveled to Jerusalem via Jordan.
View from our hotel lobby.
My husband's extended family lives in and around the old city.
Another couple accompanied us. It was their first time visiting the Holy Land so after greeting the family and having lunch, we headed to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher where I once again lit candles for my friend;s parents (her dad died in 2015 and her mom in 2016). I also lit a candle for my Uncle Bob who just passed away on September 18th, five days short of what would have been his 81st birthday.
There were lots of tour groups visiting so quite crowded at times.
We walked through the souq every day.
And wandered the streets as we headed to different religious and historical spots.
We saw so much in the 3 days we were there but I'll have to break it up into future posts.
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.
