Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Dania Shapira

When you stand at the top of Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, the old city of Jerusalem and beyond is beneath you. It is a stunning view! Somehow, the camel posted there for tourists seems out of place; not part of the feel of holiness. But, think of it, it does add colors to the picture.

Location: Mount of Olives, Jerusalem, Israel
