Day 1 in Jerusalem

Well, we have arrived safely here in Israel and have already spent a half-day in the old city of Jerusalem. And it was wonderful! In addition to touring through some of the old gates, we got to go to the Western Wall and pray as well as see the nightly closing of the Church of the Holy Seplechure (a 1300-year old tradition). Now we have just woke up after a good nights sleep and will be spending the entire day in the old city! Here are a few pics from yesterday:

We're having slight problems with our technology stuff, but we should have that resolved in a day or so. Well, off we go for today!
