Left King David Hotel around 10:30 on Friday, had to make Eldan auto rental to turn our car in before 1:00 as they close early for Shabbat. Is a very nice scenic drive from the Dead Sea to Jerusalem.
Dropped Dawn off with all our stuff at the apartment were renting in the German Colony in Jerusalem, and made it to Eldan by 12:30.
Took a short cab ride back to the apartment we have rented, located on Masaryk street, and got settled in. We were advised by the owner Benyamin, that we should get to the local market soon if we needed anything because everything would be closing soon for Shabbat. Picked a few things up, then hit a local cafe for lunch.
Is a really nice area, with many cafe's and shopping options to chose from. Sure enough, by 3:00 most everything was shut down. Took a short cab ride down to the Jaffa Gait, and walked around a bit threw the Old City, window shopping.
Got back to the apartment early, the climb up Masada earlier in the morning meant a early night to bed. Had a big day planned early on Saturday, Mount of Olives tour.
More to report later
