Day Seven

Day seven started with a visit to Temple Mount where we saw the Dome of the Rock. The wait in line to get into the area of the Dome of the Rock was about 2 hours. During that time there were several parties that were going to the Western Wall to celebrate their Bar Mitzvah. They were escorted up to security by two men in their twenties dressed in white and playing drums and cow horns. Everyone was chanting and singing. It really was an experience. After the
Dome of the Rock, we walked the Way of the Cross to the church of The Holy Sepulcher. We had lunch in the old city and then had some free time. I walked around in the old city and then walked back to the hotel. I had a nice relaxing swim in the pool.
