On the way to the western wall security check last night I got smashed in a crowd of multiple nationalities, religions and ethnicities in a narrow alley. If that's not Jerusalem in a nutshell... #oldcity #jerusalemoftheday #jerusalem #westernwall #traveldiaries

There are a bazillion stray cats on our block here in #jerusalem . This one really likes us. It's hard not to pet them when they are this friendly and insistent. I guess they just know we are cat people. Cat people who carry hand sanitizer ๐Ÿ˜น #cats #streetcats #catspotting #jerusalemcats #straycats #jerusalemoftheday

Another crazy Friday at the market. โค๏ธ

A little old city #fashion in the #shuk . Traditional garments and accoutrements from many cultures and religions collide here. You can get almost anything from a pair of fake crocs to underwear to a hair scrunchie. But hand stitched robes like this are what stops me in my tracks. Who, I wonder, made this? Who taught them to sew? Who did they picture wearing it? How long has it been hanging there on that plastic hangar and how many tourists and pilgrims from how many countries have wandered right by without sparing another thought? These are the things I wonder as I wander the shuk. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑโคโœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿช #travelwithkids #familytravel #shopping #travgram #travelersnotebook #traveldiary #travelersnote #traveldiaries #beautifulplaces #oldcity #market #handmade #traditions #jerusalem #jerusalalens #jerusalemoftheday #jerusalem_photo_of_the_day #jerusalemphotooftheday

Frankincense and myrrh and much more. The smells of spice and incense at the Old City Market/Shuk are unique and unforgettable. For me, it's a permanent sense memory. Without opening my eyes I would know where I was. When, probably doesn't matter as I would bet these smells have been the same for 1000 years. The plastic containers are all that's new. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑโœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿช #jerusalem_photo_of_the_day #jerusalemoftheday #jerusalalens #tbexjlm #jerusalem #travgram #travelgram #traveldiary #travelersnotebook #travelersnote #travelwithkids #familytravel #spices #incense #souvenir

I can't stop snapping photos of the street #cats in #jerusalem . They are all old souls and probably prophets. Who do you think this one is? She looks so sad to me ๐Ÿ˜ฟ

Just when I think #jerusalem cannot surprise me anymore... #punchbuggy pink! #tbexjlm ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’ž

New word: lemuring. I'm going to use it whenever it's freezing cold and I have jet lag and all I feel like doing is sleeping in a big pile of my best furry pals.

A spot of shopping at Mamilla mall in #jerusalem . On Saturday night when shabbat ends many stores and restaurants open for a few hours and couples come out to browse and socialize. It was a gorgeous night tonight and I could not resist capturing these two. The numbers on the stones are a story in themselves. The old buildings that were already here in this neighborhood were disassembled and painstakingly reconstructed as part of the new shopping mall. Every stone was labelled so the puzzle could be put back together. #jerusalens

Runner headed into a bakery after the #jerusalem #marathon yesterday. He sure earned those pastries! #jerusalemoftheday #travelgram #travelwithkids #familytravel #running #traveldiaries #tbexjlm #streetphotography #rainbow #flag #israel ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŽโœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

So much cheese, so little time. I was too overwhelmed to choose so I just stood there drooling and watching this guy make a sandwich on fresh baguette with truffle butter AND truffle cheese. Life is short. Double truffles are not a bad idea. #foodietravels #nomnomnom #nomnomnom #travelfoodie #mahaneyehuda #market #fromagerie #cheese #tbexjlm #morecheeseplease ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿง€๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿง€๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿง€
