Sunset, Jerusalem

The Jerusalem streets Adam chose to follow connected in a big circle; we drove in this circle for over an hour after backtracking from Tulkarm and the long drive from Haifa. By the time we found the old part of the city, “get me out of this car Adam!” I was tired, hungry and still blaming my coughing, aching, stuffy head condition on contagious Adam and his Asian tour.

Double parking, parking on grass and parking on sidewalks is common in Jerusalem. I was impressed with the resourcefulness the locals showed though their creative parking. Adam joined in the fun by displaying our car half on the sidewalk and half on the street.

An enchanting lighted area of shops and restaurants looked up to the walls of Old Jerusalem. I was ready for a break from Mediterranean cuisine so we decided on a restaurant that offered Italian food. Pasta and meatballs never tasted so good! After dinner we planned to call it a night and rest up for a full day inside the old city walls.
