Eastern apology

I do apologise to all those who have waited (no doubt with baited breath) for postings from Israel.
It has been a fascinating time.
Jordan was amazing, with death defying scenery as you contemplate that section of the Rift Valley.
Hundreds of steps and stairs later we have been up and down the old city of Jerusalem and it is just wondrous.
But there is no sense that any site is 'authentic' only the sense that at some place or other there is something that marks at Christian mystery. The archaeology adds much depth, but just makes a better approximation of what it might  be all about.
