Pictures Of Jerusalem

These are a few pictures from Handsome Husband's trip to the Holy Land.

First things first. Humus and fresh pita bread. (This is actually one of my favorite pictures.) The humus is the white pasty stuff on the sides with pine nuts and oil in the center. Yummy!


Church in the Old City. There are tons of churches of many religions it's hard to keep them straight.


Behind him is the Muslim cemetary, behind that is the Kedron Valley and you can see the Mount of Olives and a Christian church in the background.


The Wailing Wall


In front of Damascus Gate in the Muslim quarter of the Old City.



The gate to the City of David. As close to the West Bank as you're going to get. This is actually in the West Bank.


My favorite picture. The Tower of Absalom at the base of the Kedron Valley looking North towards Gethsemane. You can also see the gold Christian church tower. Again, he doesn't remember the name off hand.


We will upload all of them to Flickr later.
