Saturday was a long day!
…and yes, I took the picture of the dome.
I started with a very good breakfast at my hotel, which included writing the previous email message. After that I walked down to Old Jerusalem and wandered around.
There were several pilgrimage groups walking the Via Delrosa. I have lots of pictures and videos that I will put into a video later. It was a very enlightening and amazing day.
Just to be clear, Old Jerusalem is very much an actual city with people who live and work there. There are stores and restaurants all over – not just souvenirs, but food, spices, home improvement, entertainment, clothing, etc. The morning (about 9 to 11 am) was quiet and peaceful. It didn’t get crowded until the afternoon.
More pictures and a video to come… There is a lot to go through and digest to tell you all more about Jerusalem.
