Day -3

Hope you noticed that we'll now get an occasional entry from my roomie John. (See photo below)

It's getting warmer here but we still hiked around like madmen. Started off with a tour of arab East Jerusalem. We passed the US Consolate (no one is getting in there unannounced) and St. George's Anglican cathedral. No tea and crumpets. Found a great bookstore that has practically every English language book written by or about arabs. On to the Rockefeller Museum where all the loot (er, finds) of archaeologists in the 20s, 30s and 40s is on display.

Lunch in the Armenian Tavern with some great lamb:

On to Herod's palace in the afternoon and then back to relax a little and eat some of those fresh dates we bought today.
