The Old City!

Hannah had her first walk around the Old City of Jerusalem on Tuesday with a Palestinian friend I met through Dorm Room Diplomacy. We wandered the markets, Hannah had (more) freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice, and my friend insisted on buying us dinner at a really cool cafe...even though she herself was still fasting for Ramadan!

Hannah also saw the Western Wall and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for the first time. Somewhat ironically, a Muslim showed her the Church and a Christian showed her the Wall. I'll have to have a Jewish friend take her to al-Aqsa Mosque to complete the circle!

  1. What a kindness, to buy dinner for friends when you yourself are fasting!
