Todays adventures began with meeting our new companion (tour guide) for the day, Jared. He lead us on a walking tour of the Ancient City of David and told us stories of the land as we sat melting in the 29 degree weather at only 9 a.m.
We went through a series of tunnels and caves starting with the Canaanite Tunnel, and continued our way through to the Hezekiah caves where we walked through freezing cold water (it was knee deep for those of our group whom are tall and waist deep water for the shorter ones like myself). Although it was cold, it was quite a refreshing walk considering it was a whopping 34 degrees outside! After we were done taking a dip, we went onto our final stop which was narrowly spaced Roman sewers. It was fascinated to go through these sites knowing that they were not tampered for over 2,000 years.
It was a shorter day for us so after we visited the ancient city of David we got left of to choose our own lunches. A portion of the group went for the muslim traditional foods and others went towards the more modern foods.
We had free time for the rest of the day to explore some markets or do whatever our little hearts desired, like getting some rest at the convent.
