GTI met us just outside the pier, our guide took us first to an overlook of the city to get our bearings. I was surprised at how wooded and agrarian the countryside is in Israel. We then went to Bethlehem, through Palestinian territory. We picked up a Palestinian guide across the border. She stayed with us through the city. We were able to go into the crypt where the gold star is under the altar, the same star that started the Crusades. Amazing Church. Didn't see a lot else except a lovely spot for falafel lunch on the way back to Jerusalem. We went in through the east entrance to the Old City, followed the Via DelaRosso, ending at the Waling Wall. Amazing day hitting all the important Christian Sites.
