Not many cities exist in the realm of ravenous passions and invincible emotions, impermeable to reason. If one of those cities become the fulcrum of your travel plan, you realize that the experience is going to be so rich that even a tome of writing will not be enough to justify it. No other place would possibly evoke such a desire for exclusive possession. One can devote writing pages to every niche, capital, archway in every building encountered but will it suffice?? In that sense Israel becomes a subset of Jerusalem.
Thank you, CHE and Seema for the most memorable vacation!
