First stop was Mount of Olives.
Yes, its a cemetary. For biblical reasons, it’s a prime spot for Jews to be buried.
In the background, you can see the Dome of the Rock.
And let me introduce our Green Caterpillar.
Our mode of transportation throughout the trip.
Next on the agenda was Old City of Jerusalem.
There was also a bazaar area.
Other than spices, there were foods, jewelry, art pieces, souvenirs and some clothes.
Alas, we did not have a lot of time to spend at this marketplace and nothing caught my eye. ):
So onto the next location…
Dome of the Rock, Temple Mount and Wailing Wall.
It is said that when you leave your prayer at the wall, it will come true.
I left my prayer there. (:
If it comes true, I’ll let you know.
Next up, was a little surprise that our guide had for us.
Where we wore
And rode camels.
Before taking a short walk to dinner.
I opened a stall!
And was greeted by Abraham!
who shared some stories as we sat around low tables.
Dinner included pita bread, hummus, the sweetest bell peppers EVERR, lettuce, tomatoes and brinjal for starters. And the main were kebabs and date-honey-glazed chicken wings *slurps*!
Later in the evening, as part of our free-and-easy night activities, a group of us walked around Jerusalem city.
Random hat shop
We came across this funky sunglass store X-ray. They had this random pool ladder in their store.
And this building face is completely painted!!
And to round off the evening, we had gelatos!
From Aldo by Max Brenner.
And instead of taking a cab, as advised by our guide, we took a bus back to the hotel!
That was our combined receipt for 6 people. (:
