I stayed in a
crumbling old hotel (Hotel East
New Imperial) in Old Jerusalem just inside the city walls, to the left of Jaffa Gate.
The hotel had seen better days, but you could see that in the past it was one of THE
hotels in Jerusalem.
Old Jerusalem is a wonderful city -
if there there's anywhere you can see history on the streets - it's here! The Western Wall
- the Dome of the Rock (a truly beautiful building) - the Church of the Holy Sepulchre -
Three major sites for three major religions, and all with in a stones throw of each other
(any maybe that's part of the problem!)
I made it out to the
Mount of Olives and got some great photos of the old city, and a walk around the city
walls is a "must do".
