Citadel

Well, when I uploaded these pictures they came up in a different order than I selected them. Oh well. These are all pictures from a few days ago. The last few days we haven't really done much. Yesterday we went and changed money to get ready for Egypt. They told us to bring ones and fives so I have about $125 in ones. I hope I dont need more. Monday we weren't allowed to go into East Jerusalem or into the Old City because of tension regarding events in Gaza. Sometimes it's nice to just stay inside and relax. We leave for Egypt on Sunday! Crazy. These pictures are all from when we went to visit David's Citadel. It was really interesting to see but the guided tour was 2 hours and we were all hungry so we didn't stay very long.
Us inside the Citadel. You can't see it very well but there was a ton of modern art on the inside. Kind of interesting/weird.

I'm not exactly sure what this building is (I'll find out) but I think it's some sort of government building. Anyway, you can see bullet holes all over the face of the building if you look closely.


Steph and me sitting on some steps inside the Citadel. This was a very warm day. We were happy to be able to take off our jackets.

This was the story of my life the first week or so of the trip. I got betta!

That picture of you blowing your nose looks like Stephanie spotted a celebrity walking down the streets in Jerusalem and snapped a quick Paparazzi of her! Is that Clair Danes?
