Meanwhile, I'd taken some photos of how we are being fed at the Leonardo in Tiberius. The "Tour" provides two meals a day, breakfast and dinner. This was a "Dinner" served usually around 6:30pm. I would like to share with you what we experience every evening. Here, I simply went down the buffet line taking pictures and will let them speak for themselves. "Bonn Appetite!"
WIlma and I are presently in the Prima Kings Hotel in Jerusalem just a few minutes walk from the Jaffa Gate of the Old City. We are sitting in the lobby before breakfast, writing on our computers watching the sun rise through the windows curving half way around our seating area. We are thinking of you all, wishing you were here, and also wishing you all a great day today. After breakfast, we begin with a visit to the Mount of Olives. It's hard to express how it feels to be in the very place Jesus and his disiples were 2000 years ago. To see the horizon line they saw. To feel the air they felt. To be where they had been. The "presence" is often palpable, striking us with the wonder and emotion of it all. Every site we visit is so inspiring and has this sense of awe about it.
When we drove into Jerusalem on the bus, they played "Oh Jerusalem" and I have to tell you I had an emotional moment crocodile tears running down my face.
I know I'll have that happening today again, more than once.
OK, where is that breakfast coffee?
