|The "Russian Compound" is the name of the neighborhood where I stayed in Jerusalem. Those window shutters are made of solid iron.|
|The old city and the Dome of the Rock.|
|IDF soldiers guarding a Jordan River baptismal site.|
What I didn't see was untrained civilians packing heat, like say in Texas, because that would be fucking dangerous.
Stone Walls and Iron Doors
|The entrance to my Jerusalem B&B apartment.|
Still, when your tiny 13 square meter studio apartment has thick stone walls and an iron door it kind of feels like being in a prison cell.
Dead Camera Battery
My DSLR camera battery died while I was in the Old City and, of course, I didn't have a recharger. Just another reason to return to Israel soon.
