Jerusalem at night

What to do on a hot, sultry evening in Jerusalem?

Well, if you’re staying at the Notre Dame Centre on thing, in fact just about the only thing, you can do is climb the stairs to the roof terrace and count the mosques.

Shining out like beacons in the darkness because of their green neon lights I counted 8 from my viewpoint, mostly in East Jerusalem but not all.

I wonder how they feel, the people who worship here? Do they recognise that they are one of three abrahamic faiths that claim Jerusalem as one of the cradles of their faith? Or do they choose to ignore Judaism and the many brands of Christianity that can be found in, or near, the Old City?
