We're Here!

Ecce Homo is now home! We're living for the next ten days in Jerusalem and hope to use the better than anticipated computer/internet facilities for some solid blogging.

Before we head off for a walking tour of the city, a few notes and observations for fleshing out later:
  • Passports can, in fact, get lost within the gate area of Newark Airport.
  • Israeli Passport Control can and will hold you for a solid 45 minutes without reason or explanation, regardless of where your passport is from.
  • The Old City is absolutely TINY.
  • Walking through the walls of Jerusalem gives a strong feeling of pilgrimage, even if its only from a bus at the bottom of the hill.
