Jerusalem: Crosses, Minarets, Synagogues and Funny Guns

A cityscape punctuated by crosses, synagogues and the green glow of mosque minarets

and a marketplace where toy guns are called 'Funny'...

  1. I'm not religious so I'm not sure about visiting there in this day and age. I guess when Israeli government ends its apartheid I would like to travel the area.

    1. One of my best friends is Israeli and I had the good fortune to see the country through her eyes. There is so much to see historically and archaeologically that I don't think you need to be particularly religious to enjoy the country.

    1. It is a sacred place to so many religions. Walking through Jerusalem is like inhabiting many different eras at the same time.

  7. What a strange, yet modern day world juxtaposition. I too, as Sarah says, would love to see the place, but not the guns.

  8. Have I told you yet that I love the poem Ithaka on your sidebar, and have printed it out to re-read and re-read? It is SO good.

    1. My favorite poem......so glad you enjoy reading it. It was read at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's funeral, apparently her favorite poem as well.

    1. Humanity is an odd bunch. Sometimes I wonder how we manage to take ourselves seriously!
