Shabbat stuff

Shabbat - Day of Rest
As you may know, Shabbat [Sabbath] is the day of rest. Here in the City of Jerusalem, the entire city is closed down. No buses, no stores, no restaurants.

I stayed around our hotel all day. Joe decided that he wanted to walk. I would have walked with Joe, but he is able to walk much more than myself.

Joe went from our hotel in Kiryat Moshe, all the way to the Old City! He explored around the Old City and did not return to the hotel for about five hours. Then he took a shower, and afterwards a four hour nap!

Our hotel has a Shabbat menu! Joe bought a huge Greek salad. I feasted on pastry and cookies.
