Andrew’s Day 4

Posted by madtrippin on April 11, 2008

We had a crazy day tody.  We hit went to the church ascention (where Jesus was to have ascended to heaven.  On the way out, a arab kid handed me a olive branch and, unfortunately, I took it.  They expect to get paid.  I handed him a dollar and one of his little friends (maybe 5 or 6) wanted a dollar too.  I tried to give him a sheckel ($0.25) and he threw it back at me and followed me back to the bus asking to “give me… give me… give me.”  the whole way back to the bus.  It’s just pathetic.

Then we headed into the inner walls of Jerusalem.  We went to the Inside the inner walls of Jerusalemwestern wall / wailing wall, where people are praying.  It’s a high security area, so you have to go through a security check-point.

After that, we headed out to Bethlehem.  Our guide couldn’t come with, as Israeli citizens aren’t allowed in Palestinian areas by Israeli law.  We headed Security check-point on the way out of Bethlehemthrough the security wall picked up a new guide.  We visited the Church of the Nativity and Shepherd’s field.  I had no cell service in the Palestinian area, so I missed the call with my family – I was bummed.

 Here are the mullet hunting pics I promised to Maria.  The little kid in the middle had just been baptised at the Jordan river.  The guy in the middle of the other pic has a crazy mullet, but his camera strap blocked it little.  His female friend to the his left had a fe-mullet.  For this shot, Gabe offered to act as the faux photo subject, just in case he saw me taking his picture.

    LOL at the mullet hunting…oo, and silly question but the little kid who followed you back to the bus saying “give me”, did you end up giving him a dollar also?
