Bethlehem!

Mike takes us on a spur of the moment trip to Bethlehem!

Our tour guide, Mike’s good friend Elias. He knows everybody.

That’s where Jesus was born, yo. The Church of the Nativity.

Funny story about those ostrich eggs above the lamps (there, btw, so mice and rats would slip off and not get into the oil). Most of them are thousands of years old and from a now-extinct Middle-Eastern ostrich. Some of them are about 15 years old and from El Hayaen. Whee!

The church had small doors to keep the donkeys out.

The real reason for our visit: ducks and quails!

That one’s for grandma.
Lots of love!
