Jerusalem, Israel

Weekend! At last!! Though with all things pending it's gonna be a busy busy busy weekend as well (punishment for my procrastination) but at least Ill have the coziness of home..coz with the -15 degrees outside and the icy slippery roads, doesnt really feel pleasant to be outside....and it's been such a hectic week..ahhhh...... i have so many messages to reply too, not being able to do so in this past week or two... i really wish the day lasted for 48 hours sometimes....

But lets get down to cards...thats what you came for here anyway :)
First for today we have Israel...and I really like this card coz it shows something different from the Jerusalem views that are most frequent to be seen around..this one shows the Mount of Olives.
It is is a mountain ridge in east Jerusalem, named for the olive groves that covers its slopes. The Mount of Olives is associated with Jewish and Christian traditions and has been used as a Jewish cemetery for over 3,000 years and holds approximately 150,000 graves.
The necropolis on the southern ridge, the location of the modern village of Silwan, was the burial place of the city's most important citizens in the period of the Biblical kings.

Ever heard this Jerusalem song by Alphaville? You know, that band singing Big in Japan? :)

A lovely lighthouse stamp that has passed by without  cancellation. It was issued in 2009 in a set of 3, depicting lighthouses in Israel. This one is in Jaffa.
