No matter how many times I come to Jerusalem there is something new to see. I do a lot of walking, always the best way to see a city and Jerusalem has so many interesting places to walk. It’s also quite hilly so you really get your exercise here. It’s such a cross between religious neighborhoods of all “stripes”, the secular Western world (unusual in this part of the world), and a place that celebrates a global presence.
Taking a different route this morning, brought me to the backside of an abandoned Christian orphanage on a prime piece of Jerusalem real estate that is now being turned into modern luxury apartments.
