Churches, Ruins, Museums, and Other Stuff

Yesterday we went to the Church of the Nativity. That has two churches Orthodox and Roman Catholic. Next we went to Herodium, a palace of Herod the Great. Also, tradition says that his tomb lies there, it was so fun to climb there even though it was only stairs. Also we went to the Israel Museum, where we went to see the Shrine of the Book, and that is where the Dead Sea Scrolls are held it was sooooo boring. We also saw a small model of Jerusalem in Jesus time, that was kinda cool . Lastly we met with a Jew that lived in America a long time, but then moved to Israel that was kinda interesting. We are still staying in Bethlehem.
