Departing from Tel-Aviv, and facing the morning traffic :-(, upon reaching Jerusalem, we first refresh ourselves at the local “Aroma” branch in Mamilla Pedestrian Mall , and then we are ready to start exploring the Old City  of Jerusalem!.

We enter at Jaffa Gate , and first head into the Jewish Quarter .

We walk along the Roman period Cardo , pass by the Burnt House  and the Hurva Synagogue , to reach the plaza of the famed Western Wall  .
