If you read Tales From The Old City Part1 you`ll know that I was in Jerusalem to celebrate my nephew's BarMitzvah, and at the same time act as official photographer for the day in Jerusalem.
Part 1 of this post concerned the ceremony during Morning Prayers at the Wall. Following that and a fantastic brunch near by we took part in a Scavenger Hunt around the Old City. We broke into groups, were given guide packs and set on our way. It was a superb event taking me to places I'd never seen before. Furthermore I learnt a fair bit. I learnt about the only mosque in the Jewish Quarter, saw the remains of a sniper rifle from Wars gone by and admired ornate craftsmanship in countless ornately decorated doors and walls.
Jerusalem is such an historic city for many different people, overall it's slightly over whelming but the Old and the new are effortlessly blended throughout. I've been many times and I'm sure I'll go many more. It's always been somewhere I've lost myself in whilst looking at others now however I have my own memories that will come back whenever I go not only of a remarkable day in the old city but a beautiful weekend all round.
