On day two, we explored the Old City of Jerusalem. We saw the room where Jesus had his Last Supper, learned about the long (very long) history of the city, and prayed at the Kotel, also known as the Western Wall. We enjoyed our time at the Western Wall so much that we couldn't bear to leave even while being pelted with hail! That day we also went to an Israeli mall to learn more about the culture and eat shawarma! On the eve of our second night we began our shabbat celebration with prayers and dinner at the hotel with our friends from the other buses. Yesterday, we continued our shabbat celebration by sleeping all day! We then went to another mall (apparently Israelis love malls) to enjoy dinner and eat more shawarma!!
We are having so much fun (which is why I haven't called, mom) and are learning so much.
