The same six of us will be going to
Seeing the sights is like watching events pop right out of the Bible. On Good Friday, saw a procession of hundreds following the Via Dolorosa path that Christ took and witnessed a bizarre re-enactment by zealots. "Jesus" was even covered in animal blood for effect. Grossed out by watching hundreds of Orthodox women kissing the supposed sepulcher stone. Some nice solitude in the Garden of Gethsemane. By night, the city glows under a full moon. I don't know how much is my imagination, but at times I feel like I've been transported back 2000 years. A jarring awakening to the modern day when I see Israelis teenagers jetskiing in the Sea of Galilee.
