Fondest memory: This where the first surprise I had expected to see a city in the middle of a empty sand desert with a great wall around it. Instead I it was a big modern city up in the mountains and the wall around the old city where mostly hidden behind buildings or destroyed long ago. When I entered Jerusalem at noon it was sunny and the temperature where a comfortable 22C. In the evening at about 8 when I left it was about –3C and snowing with thin layer of snow on the streets. Talk about change in weather!

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten
Commandments with her five and six year olds. After
explaining the commandment to "honor thy father and
thy mother," she asked "Is there a commandment that
teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"

"Thou shall not kill."
Fondest memory: this is at the Christian embassy in Jerusalem, Let my people go
Favorite thing: Here you can see along one of the outer walls of the old city. Below it you have the new and modern road leading into "new" Jerusalem. You can get an idea of the size of the walls by the cars and people below.
