Jerusalem

Maybe someday, I will be able to write about Jerusalem.  At this point, though, my mind reels whenever I think of it.  Is there any other city–holy to three different religions–that is such a complex, explosive stew of religion(s), history, culture, hatred and love?

In the meantime, here are a few photos I took when I visited in 2012.
