Visiting Jerusalem (part 1)

I spent Tuesday afternoon site seeing… and I was truly overwhelmed.  My faith was reaffirmed after pondering where I was walking and thinking about all that has happened in this holy place so many years ago.  I was also uplifted seeing so many other devout people of different  faiths.     I would encourage anyone that has the ability to travel (financially and physically) to  visit Jerusalem and really take the time to learn about the wonderful history of this beautiful land.  I was extremely sad that I had only one day.    I feel incapable of providing much insight or history so I will just offer my pictures  (without my usual odd… strange… or weird comments)
