|Our guest house in Bethlehem|
As we drove towards Jerusalem, Bishara started to explain. For those new to the Holy Land, it seems very complicated. Over the next few days we will get the opportunity to experience and hear more. The drive took about one hour. We skirted Jerusalem and drove into Bethlehem. The checkpoint3 and 8 metre wall were a shock to those new to the West Bank. Darkness falls as we arrive at our guest house - St Vincents.
After finding our rooms, we gather for a wonderful evening meal, followed by Compline. Finally we get to bed, having been told we have breakfast at 6:30am and leave on our first day’s visits at 8am. So much to see and do.
