It's not that I've been sitting still... It's just that I haven't had a lot of time (or wanted to) update here. But, here we go anyway:
in Jerusalem (yes, again hahaha)
the view from when I was walking around the compound looking out at the 'greater' Jerusalem while it rained:
the Western Wall was quite desolated though I gotta admit the women turned up in surprisingly larger numbers than did men. It's my conclusion that the fact that a significantly larger part of the wall was designated to the male population is a complete mistake. there are ALWAYS more women there than that there are men and I find it quite discriminating they were appointed a smaller portion of the Wall. Which just shows you: logics or being fair has nothing to do with it - it's a male dominant world and that's it.
The sun broke through for a few minutes and though he did put up a fight he lost against the grey blanket skies - but it felt quite spiritual when he did try to lighten things up through a small hole in the skies:
At the Shuk, where I did get to buy the house-slippers I tried to find -in vain- two weeks ago, this arch with something that resembled very much a kinda dump caught my eye. Nobody else (of the very few tourists) paid attention to it:
At the way back I noticed the outer wall was full of these kinda outlook points in the form of an arch with a slit ... big enough to stretch a weapon through...
And then there was this little flowers hanging out of one of the windows of the buildings right at the edge of "old city"
