Jerusalem by camel

Darren's mum mentioned that she had always wanted to ride on a camel - and today her wish came true.
A price was negotiated, and then the camel's owner gave her a helping hand onto it's back. I was a bit worried that she might tipple forward and over the camel's head, but no, in a very smooth manoeuvre she was on and up. Even more impressive was that she didn't even hold on and got a cheer from the whole tour group!!
It was a very gentle and friendly camel, and the only slight worry came when the owner said that it would be an extra 50 shekels for the camel to sit back down again.
Also, the view of the old city of Jerusalem behind the camel was incredible.
As expected we had another action packed day that included a visit to the Garden of Gethsemene, the church next to it (pic 4), the church of John the Baptist and the extremely moving Holocaust Museum.
