In a garden setting at the Dominus Flavus Church. The church was TOO crowded. But we tried to get and then they closed it for a service.

The stone of Unction. Where they laid Jesus' body -- so now you are blessed if you touch it -- or bless your candles or handkerchief -- whatever.

Exterior of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. With the ladder you can't move because everything has to remain status quo.

Lutheran Church of the Redeemer. Walked up the steps (well, some of us started but it was way too narrow and claustrophic for some). Tallest building in the Old City -- great view (I heard).
