This is the Sabbath and it is still very quiet. Adult children come home for the evening and the day. There is a lot of family time. But on Sunday the work day begins and traffic is back to normal. I walked around today trying to figure out the bus system while there wasn't much traffic. You can go any where in Israel on a bus. You just have to figure out on how to do that. It is very difficult to find a map with bus routes. I have figured out a few routes. Tomorrow, I'll work harder on it. Even though it's the Sabbath, the Old City was full of people. I think that they were mostly Arabs. This evening I'm going to Ben Yehuda Street. They say it comes alive when Sabbath ends. I'll find out. The first picture is of a Wedding Car going through the narrow streets. Perhaps picking up the Bride for her wedding. The second is a shop in the market section of the Old City. Want some Sheep Heads or Hooves or stomach (tripe) for supper?
I am a Catholic Priest. Usually I am a Pastor of a Parish, but now I am on Sabbatical in the Holy Land. I would like to share with you my journey. I hope it inspires you to become closer to Christ. This is a great adventure for me, so check back & see what I have done each day.
