First Full Day in Jerusalem

We did many things and walked over 20,000 steps (yes, I had a pedometer) the first day in Jerusalem. We started at the top of the Mount of Olives and walked down to the Church at Gethsemane, entered a private garden for some time of prayer and meditation, walked down into the Old City, sang at St Anne's (the mother of Mary, mother of Jesus) and walked the Via Dolorosa in preparation for the next day when we would follow the stations of the cross along the Via Dolorosa. We wound up at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where the tomb of Christ is actually thought to be.
