THE HOLY LAND
I have been to Israel once before and the policeman at the passport control even remembered when exactly. This time I wanted to focus my stay on the city of Jerusalem and its surroundings. I wanted to go back and take the time to see what left aside last time. Things like seeing the Western Wall, The Holy Sepulchre, the Via Dolorosa.
For seeing I mean more experiencing and feeling, rather than just stopping by. I wanted to feel all that whispering at the Western Wall, I wanted to feel the pain walking down Via Dolorosa and then up again on The Mount of Olives with a faked cross on my shoulders, my photo equipment.
Jerusalem is like a funnel, you get suck into it no matter where you travelling from in Israel. Luckily faith is still the reason why we all end up there.
