Then we went to a market area called Mahane Yehuda. It was really beautiful and we had a lovely lunch there. Saw rice cakes being made. We then took a long walk. We walked through an Orthodox neighborhood called Mea Shearim, one of the oldest Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem. There were signs saying not to go in the neighborhood without long sleeves, but I did. One woman talked to me about it, but she seemed nice. I couldn't really understand what she was saying, but she was touching my arm, so I used my inferential reasoning skills. After that, we walked quickly through. I felt badly that I hadn't respected their rules, but I really wanted to see the neighborhood. Sorry, Mea Shearim! My bad.
A great day. Here are a few not great pix. I only had the iPhone and the place is kind of overwhelming so it was hard to stop and get focused. Mostly I just trudged along, goggling in awe.
