Where I stayed
The other checkpoint we drove through with no problem.
The Hand in Hand school was amazing. It is only school with Israelis and Arabs going to classes together. Imagine that. All other schools are segregated. Yes, because remember Israel is not a secular state. It is a Jewish state. So Arab Muslim parents send their students to Arab Muslim schools. The students at Hand in Hand were shocked that I don't teach you all Religion. They were VERY excited to learn about Edmondo and I hope they will post soon!
After lunch, we wandered the Old City Jerusalem. We walked at the top of the walls of the city that has been so contested over the years. Remember the ottomans, the crusaders, more recently the Jordanian army and the Israeli army. Everyone wants this city. But doesn't it belong to us all?
More on Jerusalem tomorrow. Marsalem! (Goodbye in Arabic)
