We climbed through the Kidron Valley up to the Mount of Olives, which gave us a great view of the city. Clearly, we're a very photogenic group (note: this was post-chocolate...Bob has been carrying around a bag of Hershey's and periodically bribing us to behave)
Mid-Climb--before we reached the top. We have tired feet.
This morning, our guide (Ophir) took us up to the Temple Mount. The golden dome is the Dome of the Rock: an iconic view of Jerusalem. We didn't get to stay as long as we had planned because they were clearing it for mid-day prayer, but we will go back tomorrow.
FOOD! (Delicious. Enough said.)
p.s. the picture at the top of the blog is no longer from Google Images--this is what we saw today!!!
