Damascus Gate

This picture was taken in the early 1900's, and shows the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. I have always wanted to visit the Middle East, but have never been able to. When you are young, you don't have enough money to do it, and as you get older, you don't have enough time for it. Hopefully someday.

  1. The wealth of history in the Old World is overwhelming to us young Americans. A certain shop in London has been in use for 1000 years. That's a lot of people to walk in and out of that shop, right where you yourself walk. It's almost mind boggling.

  2. Absolutely amazing.

    Its a shame that this part of the world has never known peace, and probably never will.
