五月九日 下午

從伯利恆回來后俺們回旅店睡了個午覺。醒來時已經快四點了。想起來聖母安息教堂和它旁邊的大衛王的墓(最後晚餐地點)和橄欖山還沒去於是決定去看這幾樣。昨天走錯了,實際上出了錫安門就是。這兩天在這裡溜達的地形已經很熟悉了。

看了聖母安息堂,大衛王墓俺們就在路邊攔了個計程車去橄欖山上。其實走路更好,但是這幾天走的有些多,開始不想動腿兒了!司機是個巴勒斯坦人,是從約旦阿喀巴那邊來的,英語還湊合,人也不錯,在山上時正好是落日在聖殿山金頂的後面,拍照片有些難度,尤其是拍人像。結果司機自告奮勇帶俺們去了另一個地方避開落日的背景,還沒多收錢。俺問他260謝克爾去機場算不算貴,因為旅店跟俺們說要這麼多。他先說一般都要300。到後來送俺們回旅店時他說260他也送。然後還說如果明天俺們去傑里科的話他可以帶俺們去。

後來跟他說好明晚九點送機場,俺們的航班是凌晨四點多的。以色列要求提前三小時到機場。俺們還沒有想好去不去傑里科,一是這幾天已經看得有些審美疲勞了,二是去傑里科木有直達的公交車。做出租雖然方便但是沒啥情趣,不如做公交車能多看到當地的「新鮮」事兒。後來跟他說如果決定明天去再給他電話。

俺們明天還有個更重要的項目,聖殿山。那個地方的開放時間不穩定。俺記得是早七點半到十點,下午一點半到三點。但是以色列安全人員可以隨時停止開放,不用解釋任何原因。這次又不知是啥原因前兩天都不開放,明天是俺們唯一的機會。晚上吃完飯又到聖墓教堂去例行「檢查」了一下。

聖母安息堂離最後晚餐的地點很近,傳說聖母就是在這個地方過世的。但是俺木有搞清楚這個聖母安息堂和對面橄欖山那邊的那個聖母墓教堂是啥關係。俺印象里對面那個是個希臘東正教,這個貌似天主教。這個教堂看完之後旁邊就是大衛王墓。在裡面照相時被告知不許拍照,有個猶太老大爺還很不高興的樣子,要跟俺急眼。可,可,可是的確木有不許拍照的標示啊!俺真的是遵紀守法的良民啊!回網上一問,人家說了,平時是可以拍照的,但是周六是猶太人的個神馬說法,然後就不許拍照了。。。最後的晚餐屋子裡空空如也。

橄欖山正好在老城和聖殿山對面,對著聖殿山的被封起來的金門。耶穌復活後上他大弟子彼得哪兒打了個招呼帶上乾糧啥的就從橄欖山升天了。上去時還跟施瓦辛格一樣很酷的來了句:i'll be back!。。。扯遠了。   傳說上帝/耶穌/彌賽亞再次降臨人間時就從這裡登陸,埋在橄欖山上的猶太人都將要被首批複活,然後上帝會從金門進入耶路撒冷。這也就是為啥穆斯林在聖殿山上建了金頂和清真寺后把這個金門給封上了。金門底下和附近的山坡上全部都是穆斯林的墓,俺的猜想是為了抵禦上帝的到來。可,可,可他們不是供的同一個上帝嗎?百思不得其解!這橄欖上倒是個看風景的好地方,耶路撒冷老城一覽無餘!

你們家裡有猶太人「內線」的幫俺問問門上這個斜貼的小裝飾是幹嘛的? 或是有什麼意義?在好幾個地方都看見了,有一家旅店房間門上也有,不過沒有這個精緻。先謝了。

聖墓教堂,上面這個梯子可是有講究的。聖墓教堂裡面有六個教堂(教派?)裡面地盤劃分的很嚴紛爭也很厲害,公元二世紀初他們這六派為地盤鬧得很厲害,結果當時的行政長官給他們調停了一下:從某年某月某日某時起,所有在那一刻歸納一派的地盤物件都必須永遠的保持不變,從此不允許再有紛爭。結果這個梯子在那裡忘了拿下來也就被永遠的架在了那個地方。

 

這幾個老兄在準備收攤關門兒了,在門口聊大天兒。

 

俺們就在台階上坐著看熱鬧,一直看到聖墓關門兒。這些人來晚了,導遊在門口一通胡咧咧。

5/9/2015 jerusalem bethlehem

armed with knowledge i gained at this forum i hurried my two team members to get up early today for we were going to take the famous bus 21 to bethlehem this morning!

around 7:30am we were at the damascus gate. right out of the gate the bus station weren't immidiately there, not as some described here "right outside the damascus gate". i guess i took the words too seriously. the bus station, however, was located about 300 meters to your front left if you just stepped out of the gate.

we got there at the right time - there was a bus 21 full of people and ready to go. we got on and checked with the driver if this was for bethlehem and got a confirmation. the tickets are like 8.5nis for adult and 6.5 for a child. so round trip we spend 45nis on transportation. much cheaper and easier than i thought. it wasn a pleasant ride taking about 40 minutes to the last stop. you won't miss it because everybody had to get off there!

we were approached by a couple of taxi drivers offering 10nis taking us to the manger square. we wanted to walk so we didn't take their offers and they weren't pushing hard, either. with the help of my phone gps (off line map again) we arrived at the church of nativity without trouble. the walk is little more than 1km judging by the scale of the map - a pleasant walk taking you through shops and neighborhoods.

the manger square was not very obvious. we got there and almost walked past it, partially because there were a stage being set up and a large tent sitting in the middle of it for some kind of commerical promotions. we witnessed that later on while we had lunch at a restaurant by the square.

we went into the church and only found out that there were like three masses on-going, to see the silver star we would have to come back in more than an hour. so we just took a little tour of the adjacent st catherine's church. nice little church. afterwards we wondered over to the milk grotto. there was a group of believers from india on site. took them a little while to go through their prayings and singings. we saw many groups like this from india at other places, too. i never knew there were that many christians in that part of the world. after the indians left we sat there to rest and comtemplate a little bit. very nice!

we then came back to the church of nativity again and only found out the masses were still in session. so we decided to have lunch first althought it was a bit early. but, we didn't have breakfast, it was just fine. we settled with a restaurant by the square by the name of, well, the square restaurant. it turned out rather nice. i had a palestinan sampler. and the real bonus is that i, for the first time, had a taste of the taybeh beer (golden) - the best beer i had on this trip. later on i got the permission from wife to give it a go on the smoke pipe. but the waiter told me it was just regular tabaco smoked through a pipe, not really worth for an experience.

our waiter is a palestinian young man (sadly i started to call people young man more frequently a few years ago), born in haifa, his mother has an israeli passport and father without it. he has 9 siblings - all live in the states except him. by his own words, he did want to live in the states becuase he would be like "fish without water". said he has many israeli friends but resent what their government does. had a nice time chatting with him.

after lunch we went back to the church. by now there was a huge line waiting to get to the basement. we were approached by a tour guide offering us 20usd to go through a "family line". we felt pretty bad to cut the line but if we didn't we would be spend at least the next three hours or longer in the queue. so we went with him. but we didn't feel very good. it was very crowded in the basement and the line moved very slow. we ran into the indian group here, again. i understand the importance of this spot for the belivers and tourists alike. i just hope there's a better way to let everybody see this spot. the whole thing was kind of rushed. i did see the star, but i didn't get a chance to give the silver star a good stare because i felt i was interrupting the faithfuls waiting in line.

after that was done. we took a taxi and asked him to take us to the other bus station, bus 124 (?), coming back from a different route with a stop at the separation wall. but the cab driver pulled a fast one on us. he took us straight to the stop for bus 21. upon our protesting he laughed and drove us to a section of the wall and took some pictures, and took us back to bus 21. we still paid him 20nis. but if you are looking for the experience to walk through that check point seen on many videos you will have to insist on what you pay for.

on our way to bethlem noboday had to get off at the checkpoint. but on the way back all the palestinians had to get off the bus and be checked before getting back on. our passports got looked at by an israeli soildier, no questions asked.

back to jerusalem, we took a nap and headed out again to check out the dormition abbey and david's tomb, which went very successful this time. i was told not to take photos at david's tomb where no signs could be found. one guy was pretty intense seeing me carring a camera.

we hailed a cab on the street to take us up to the viewing point on the mount of olives. he told us that one way would be 45-50nis, round trip 120 with half an hour waiting. we finally agreed on 110nis. since the sun was against us we couldn't get a good family photo taken he took us to another spot and got us a good family photo. to reward his nice act we told him that we would take his ride to the airport tomorrow night.

i am getting tired of saying this by now: this turned out to be another nice and successful day!

周六是安息日,啥也不能幹,但不應包括吾等。

大衛墓我們去的時候可以照相。

對啊,平常是允許拍照的,所以沒有不許拍照的標誌。拍了張大衛的墓就有人跟俺說了。那個猶太老爺子還挺激動,關我鳥事兒。

是不是把你當自家人了?

嘻嘻,不太可能。俺那個樣子一看就是「愚蠢的遊人」stupid tourist。不過網上本地專家說這個規矩對遊人也一樣。例如哭牆安息日所有的人都不許照相用手機等等。

門上斜貼的小裝飾是他們的經書的象徵好像,猶太人家門口都有這個,叫mezuzah。他們出入都要用手摸一下,敬意和祈福大概。

喜歡耶城的清晨和夜晚, 白天太喧嘩, 尤其是那些攤位讓人不爽。

俺倒是覺得白天有白天的喧囂早晚有早晚的意境。最大的好處是攤販們不是連拉帶扯的。據說這一點埃及很恐怖。
