Not to be outdone by the tunnel field trip, thursday afternoon was spent catching sights in East Jerusalem including Dormition Abbey with the Tomb of Mary and a Holocaust Memorial. Annie was our fearless leader, and we had one of the most productive sightseeing days yet.
Finally, we got an 'almost' free-day on friday. After one class, we headed out to West Jerusalem where we had a great time elbowing our way through markets. The market was packed full of people, food, and culture. I loved it. I even found myself a bag of pretzels for 7 shekels to go with my newfound love of Nutella...which is definitely bad news for my health. Oh well.
The festivities of the week ended with more hookup board drama, a secret oath between 5 girls, and my personal favorite...being pantsed (is that even a verb?) by Richelle. After a life like this, I just don't know if Utah will ever be able to cut it again. Except for the fact that I have some of my favorite people there. So no worries, I'll be coming back. ;-) In closing, here's a picture of some more amazing people that I love.
