Better learn to Barter

Today me and my friends went to the old City in Jerusalem, We went to the Market and quickly learned that we could not afford the first price that was offered to us. Negotiating with the locals is very fun and it is something they exspect you to do. I did not even buy anything, but still had a great experience.

Later, we went to the Church of all Nations and the Garden of Gethsemane. It was a surreal experience for me, especially being religious and knowing what happened there.

I have been here a little over a week, and not a day has gone by without somebody going out of their way to help me.  I even got a free Taxi ride today, which i thought was unheard of, which shows the kindness of the Isreali people.
