Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem 

We volunteered to sift through rubble, and found lots of pottery shards and these thousand year old mosaic tiles.

These artefacts are from the Jewish Temple which which used to stand where the Islamic Dome of the Rock is now.

We left the old city via the Lion Gate, then walked down to the Garden of Gethsemane, where olive trees from Jesus’ time still live. A gold domed church sits higher on the Mount of Olives.

I bought food at this stall.
