Went to Caesarea (Maritime, Pontius Pilot) on the Meditteranean Sea - Very beautiful - the hippodrome is huge!
Visited the traditional Via Dolorosa, crucifixion, and burial site
Visited the church of all nations built on the garden of gesthemane
Went to a park on the Mt. of Olives with an incredible panoramic view of Jerusalem - watched the band take camel rides
Had a great Arabic Bedouin dinner at the Shepherd's Valley Village Tent Restaurant - they performed a traditional Dabkah dance for us too. The food was GREAT! Best yet.
