Today (theoretically yesterday, it is after midnight), I went walking with my best friend, this time in Jerusalem. We took a bus to the German colony area. There we walked around, enjoying the old buildings. There are a lot of very interesting buildings there. Some have been refurbished, many with exquisite gardens as well.

From there we walked back to the Mishkenot Sha'ananim area, where Montefiore's windmill stands.

Then we walked all the way to the central bus station, all together getting in about 17,000 steps. As we walked back, we passed through the Mamilla Mall, and along the tourist shops on Jaffa road. Suffice it to say that there are a lot of LOVELY things to be bought for a LOT of money!
