The ancient City of David

This morning we visited David's City, on Mount Zion, and walked through the ancient Canaanite tunnel near the Gihon Spring.

We could hear the roar of rushing water through Hezekiah's Tunnel, too, after the rain.

It was only just wide enough for a person to fit through - and for a joker like Peter to pretend he was stuck and needing a push :-))

After a brief rest among the olive trees we were off again, this time to visit the newly discovered Pool of Siloam.

Unfortunately this is all we're ever likely to see, unless the Greek Orthodox Church changes its mind and agrees to sell the land to the left of the photo.
