They had a grand walking tour of our town (at least as much as we've been able to figure out in the three months we've been here....); we walked all the way to the top and then down past our house to the very, very bottom.
We stopped at many parks.....
But, unfortunately, not for gluten-free falafel (found out the place is moving and expanding, not closed permanently. Whew)
and visiting the Kotel
It felt nice and safe. There was plenty of extra security there but very few people visiting. It's a very difficult time for the merchants in the Old City. I hear they're really having trouble earning a living with so few tourists coming through....
We toured an INCREDIBLE stalactite cave that's right nearby (now on the fun-genda for any of you who come visit!)
|This is, clearly, *outside* the cave (no photos inside) but I loved how we were up in the clouds|
And, in general, just hung out.
It was really lovely and we miss them already!
(Hint hint to others: Israel is really not so far once you're going to pretty much any place across the Atlantic. Our guest room is set up and ready for more visitors, so please make your reservation today!)
