Old City, day and night

I could go here every day for the rest of my life and never see the same thing twice. Images from the past two days:

Shops just opening

Minaret near the Austrian Hospice (great courtyard for reading in)

Pilgrims on the Via Dolorosa

Dome of the Rock (still need to get the daytime view)

Western Wall. I expected this…

…but not this. Party on the Plaza, prayers at the Wall.

It was some kind of IDF ceremony just finishing. Soldiers and family members were everywhere.

Juggling fire at Jaffa Gate

All of this is about 45 minutes walk from my apartment. I need to go as often as possible.
