Haifa and Jerusalem, Israel

We visited Haifa, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem in Spring of 2000.  I only carried a small point and shoot camera during this trip. 
Below are a few select pictures. Several years later, I returned in 2016 with a modern digital SLR camera..

Street in Old Jaffa. As I walked this neighborhood, a resident played David Bowie's
"Space Oddity", the music coming out of their small window.
