Hello blog readers,

We are in Jerusalem, but getting here was interesting. We finally were able

to bring our rental back. Yeaaaah😂😂 This morning we entered through the Jaffa Gate.

into a world we could hardly imagine. You can see all the pictures read all

the travel books but until you enter this city you will not conceive of its rareness

( my new word) So first we made our way to the Western Wall. I could go to the wall

in a different area as a man. Gloria to another area of the wall as a woman. I took

photos actually got up to the wall, put my hand on it and asked our God to send

Jesus QUICKLY. The pictures I send will show things going on and how excited the

Jews are Next we went to the Cardo Mavis a 2nd to 6th century Roman street. We had

some lunch and headed for the Temple Mount. Only open today fron 1:30 to 2:30

We waited for 1 1/2 hours to get in. We spent 30 min and then they schooed us off.

I will include pictures with this blog.

One thing I did not realize was how steep up and down is in the old city. From the Temple

Mount to the New Gate took us a half an hour. Then another 20 min to our apartment

We are pretty tired tonight Tomorrow the Mt of Olives.,

as always

I think the time in Jerusalem would have been the most fascinating to me of all your trip. So exciting!
