For those of you who have been following me for awhile, you might recall that my husband is from Jerusalem and has lots of extended family who live there.
We try to visit at least once a year and one of our first stops is always to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, believed to be where the crucifixion of Jesus occurred and where his grave is located.
We have friends who always send money with us so that we can make a donation to the church and light candles in memory of their loved ones.
Even though I've been to Jerusalem many times over the years, there's still places I've not visited, such as The Garden Tomb.
This tomb was discovered in 1867 and some believe that it might possibly be where Jesus was actually buried and resurrected. The garden is maintained by a Christian non-denominational charitable trust based in the UK and is a popular place for Protestant devotion and reflection.
When we are with family, we do a lot of sitting and eating and drinking of tea and coffee.
So to counteract all that, it is necessary to walk as much as we can, and what better place than the old souk which is a visual feast for the eyes.
We visited two other places that I'd not been to before but will save those for another time.
