Israel Pilgrimage : DAY 4Wednesday, February 11, 2015
So without further ado, let's start our photo tour to our first site.
HAROD SPRING (EIN HAROD)
BEIT 'ABARA (THE JORDAN RIVER)
To find out more about this site check out my post: Beit 'Araba (The Jordan River).
We are finally entering Jerusalem. Woohoo!
THE SHEPHERD'S FIELD (VIEW)
From where we are standing to get a view of Shepherd's Field we also caught glimpses of Bethlehem from afar.
Finally, it's time for lunch. We went for lunch at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum cafeteria.
YAD VASHEM HOLOCAUST MUSEUM
This is the last site we've visited on Day 4. We are not allowed to take pictures of the site as a rule. We we're given an hour to check the museum out. My husband couldn't stand what he saw there so he'd decided to wait for me outside while I was heartbroken and couldn't stop the tears from falling from my eyes. I don't want to say much about this topic because I know it's very controversial but for me what these people have gone through is very painful. :(
Yad Vashem is a big museum shape like a big tobleron (in my own words). Visitors are guided by a route to that takes them through the underground galleries.
It's turning dark. Time to check-in to our hotel in Jerusalem and celebrate Christmas with the group complete with exchange of gifts. Hehehe!
