We spent a few hours at the park and then decided to keep on driving n to Jerusalem. We were already half way there and it would have been a shame not to pay the holy city a little visit. There is something in that city, I just can't explain it, but it always excites me to go to Jerusalem. It might be the fresh mountain air, it might be the feeling of importance (it is the center of both religion and politics in Israel). Perhaps it's the buildings all unanimously built with the Jerusalem stone (Municipal laws in Jerusalem require that all buildings be faced with local Jerusalem stone), or maybe it's the people who live in that city. Whatever the reason, I just love visiting Jerusalem.
We walked around a bit, took some pictures, had some sweets and some coffee, paid a visit to one of the best music shops ever- Ha'tav Ha'shmini (translated it means The Eighth Note), bought some CD's, and then we called it a day. We bundled up warm, as it turned cold when the sun went home, hopped on the bike again, and hit the road back home to Tel Aviv.
Now I can't wait for the next day we both have off...
Here's a collage of our day
We started the day posing to the camera
Had some sandwiches
Searched for pine nuts in pine cones
But all we found were dried empty cones
We photographed ourselves on our own
Took some more pics of each other and the view
And paused for a moment to appreciate nature
We found a spot to rest our feet
And laid down on the grass
Then we headed to Jerusalem...
We strolled the streets
Had some sweets
And a cup of Joe before the ride back home
