We docked in Ashdod, Israel, got our landing cards and began our hour and a half journey to Jerusalem. Once there we entered through the Zion Gate of the old city. We proceeded to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher by way of some narrow streets that were in the Armenian and Jewish quarters. Being Holy Thursday the city was very crowded and so was the church which had various ceremonies going on throughout the day. After seeing the church we passed through the Christian quarter to the Wailing Wall. After the wailing Wall we went to the Mount of Olives and the Church of Gethsemane before returning to the ship.
