jerusalem – old town

Welcome to Jerusalem’s labyrinth! You enter by one of the Gates and either you follow the signs or you accept to be lost all the times.

I loved it! You are part of the History, you are in the Centre of the World and you just enjoy the experience. Four areas: armenian, jewish, christian and muslim. Yes, you will feel some tension but you also notice that they are doing their best to all live together. I mean, the old town is quite small in total…

You will find lots of shops and tourists so I tried to focus on the residential streets.

The market is the main way in and out – they sell very pretty things.

Each time, I was like: how does it look like behind those walls? which kind of house is this? how do the people who live here look like? I was so curious…

And then, this is the end of the day and you can feel that the atmosphere is changing… and you end up looking at the origin of everything. The wailing wall and the dome of the rock.
