|Outside St George's Cathedral, Jerusalem|
Speaking of food our next stop was the Upper Room where Jesus
partook of the Passover - the Last Supper with his disciples. Almost certainly this is not the room but it is probably very close to the actual place where the action happened. Close by these days is the tomb of King David which is in marked contrast to many of the religious sites we have seen around the city so far - very simple.
Our next stopover is anything but simple. The magnificent Church of the Dormition of Mary- the tomb of Mary. This Franciscan run romanesque church is literally dripping in mosaics. We enjoyed a good look at its many superb chapels and shrines.
