In the Afternoon, we went to Ein Karem. This is the town where Mary visited Elizabeth while both of them were pregnant. Also we went to the birthplace of St. John the Baptist. It was a wonderful day. Tomoorrow morning we leave for the Sea of Galilee Area. They only have internet service in the lobby where we are staying, so I'm not taking my laptop. I won't have a blog tomorrow but will resume when I return.
The pictures are of the market where the locals shop in Bethlehem. I concentrated on the Meat Section because it is so unusual from our stores. The meat hangs outside and people come and have certain cuts selected and cut while the animal hangs. We think the pictures are of goats. And the third picture is of some of the vegetables in the market. I only took one picture but there are over 30 fruit stands with wonderful fruits for sale. Bon Appetite!
