Journal Entry:
Breafast of fresh juice (orange, bananna, and apple) and Fallafel (surprise). Went to the Grand Mosque (the girls had to rent robes), where the tomb of Zikariyyeh is (john the Baptest's father). Took cover from the rain in the covered souq (market). Barrels of goats heads, intestines, brains, etc. Visited the Citadel (huge, nice view). Got lost in the winding alleys, met the pancake men (ate pancakes, had one stolen out of my hand), everywhere we went people were friendly (gave us free samples, wanted us to take our pictures with them). Diner was (surprise) falaffels and fruit juice.
