This was to be an exciting day - a visit to the Garden Tomb followed by Communion and then time off.
Here is the plan of the tomb: a door leading into a weeping chamber and a large tomb area on one side - with one finished burial place and a unfinished burial place.

and beside a quiet reminder that He is risen
We moved to a quiet place in the garden for communion. Here are the communion cups, perhaps from olive wood?

All around us was natural beauty - these interesting pinkish flowers
Warm purble colors
as well as pure white

Next we made our way through the bazaar - to this small Austrian cafe. Passing the fruits and stuff - too much before lunch
and more people

Then we started out way back to the hotel to collapse. A local hawker - preparing some sort of barbeque something
The barbeque something - happening
An arch and people

More cooking - this time in the middle of the street
