Israel Trip Part 2

Part 1 here.
The next day of the trip was Sunday. We were introduced to the Israeli soldiers who would be traveling with us. This wasn't a "we have soldiers for protection" thing, it was a "we have soldiers because they're the people our age in Israel" thing. We did have a security guy though. After doing some getting to know you activities with the soldiers, we ventured out into Jerusalem.

Once again, foreign countries have prettier streets.

And street signs.

And pretty roof gardens/spaces.
Then in the Old City we were crashed by a Bar Mitzvah.

Then we left them to constantly wonder "Who are these people on the video of our son's Bar Mitzvah?" and went to an archaeological dig site.

We followed up on that with lunch, I had shwarma. The Avenger's food. It was really good.
I horrified someone else on the trip by referring to it as a kind of "Israeli taco".
Then it was followed by gelato. But not just any gelato, Ferrero Rocher flavored gelato. It was soooo good. Then we went back to the Western Wall.

The divider between the men's and women's section.

Prayer books for use.

We finished the day's activities by climbing down a mountain.

On the way down we crawled around through wet caves.
And that was Monday.
Part 3 now up!
