A ten day visit to Jerusalem and Galilee isn’t enough to do more than scratch the surface of the place. The easiest way to try and explain what it’s like to go there is through photographs. Above is a photo of Damascus Gate; below are photos of a bread stall outside Jaffa Gate, a party of people on Segways, armed police on Temple Mount and the King David Hotel.
Next, the courtyard inside the Casa Nova, where we stayed in Jerusalem; the Ethiopian chapel in the Holy Sepulchre Church; our Palestinian Christian guide, Said, with a Muslim Palestinian student, Shadi, who came with our party; and the fortress-like Israeli settlements facing Bethlehem.
And finally, a selection of photos taken in the souk and round and about.
