Haji Christmas

Perfect view of the Dead Sea and even a dirtnicking area on the right (dirtnic = picnic in the dirt.)

One of the best relatively unknown (for now) tourist sites in Madaba - lawn ornament deer on top of a pink hill in the middle of a roundabout

Seems like it would only take a small catapult to get across the Jordan River and over the Israeli border. Is that a dorsal fin in the corner?

Jesus' Baptism Site (heavily contested)

Greek Orthodox church and the Jordan River

48 hours of gluttony

and this was only after a few hours. (It's just marble tile. That shit'll buff right out.)

No Gordon Ramsay, no presentations and not much recall by the hound at Claridges but the 2005 St Emilion Château Haut-Gravet, Grand Cru Classe may have been a better choice than the £1,150 1985 Château Cheval-Blanc, 1er Grand Cru Classé ‘A’ despite being saucy paws challenged with the iPad wine list.

Lamb tastes so different when its slow roasted, not in kebab form and not served with foot bread (The Holly Bush)

It claims to be Swiss made but something seems so haji...(2 buns for 4 hot dogs?) Happy early birthday anonymous!

All bagels (beigels) in Jerusalem are holy

Not sure what this was and didn't find out since I was more interested in my bagel with lox and a schmear

No Starbucks, but thanks God The Coffee Bean is kosher

King Herod probably could've used Beefeaters and ravens at this tower (Tower of David)

Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Maybe now that my Rolex has touched The Stone of Unction (Anointing) I'll stop dropping it

Calvary (Golgotha)

Altar of Crucifixion

Nails of the Cross

The Aedicule

Franciscan Monks

The Catholicon


The Pantokrator mosaic in the basilica

The Chapel of St. Helena

The Chapel of Adam and the Golgotha Rock

A quasi glass bathroom for all 6 denominations to share

Rest of the Stations of the Cross (partial - so South Park clip included at bottom to fill in gaps)

Via Dolorosa

Spontaneous Combustion
