Bethlehem, there will definitly be a second round!

Today I had an opportunity to drive to Bethlehem with some friends for some church related errands. It sounded like a good opportunity to visit a few sites and take some photos. Unfortunately, there were too many tourists at the Church of Nativity, and it was difficult to take nice photos there. There was a really long cue of tourists waiting to descend downstairs to see the manger and the Star of Bethlehem  and we didn’t have much time to spend there … 😦

After finishing our quick tour of Manger Square, we drove towards St. Saba Monastery. The drive was very scenic, but the Monastery was closed 😦 Apparently they close on Wednesdays and Fridays — tough luck! So, definitely there will be a second round!

Here are some photos from today:
