Day 3: Jerusalem and the Old City

Day Jan 3 ~

Started the day in the old city of Jerusalem. Prayed and put a note in the wall. I learned that after praying it is respectful to face the wall while backing away. It was an incredible experience.



Went to Machane Yehuda Market (shuk)where we ate and shopped. I had Sabich from אריכא םביח which was a falafel wrap filled with egg plant spices tomatoes and cucumber. Absolutely incredible! It needs to come to America 😍 then we ate baklava, knafen and gelato ♥

Today we rode camels in the Judea desert. The camels were surprisingly friendly besides the occasional grunt. After we hiked Masada and learned about it's history. We finished with a fun afternoon in the dead sea.
