A Taste of Honey- Day 12

We spent all our time in Jerusalem today- mainly underground. But before then, we were able to go up to the Temple Mount. It is a very restricted area- the epicenter of the struggle in the Muslim/Jewish world.

Underground Jerusalem. Parts of the paths have places where the huge rocks are broken- from when the Romans broke through to capture and kill the Jews who had retreated to the sewer to hide.
Original steps from Jesus’ time

We also went through Hezekiah’s tunnel, an awesome engineering feat.
