Jerusalem in Photos

It’s practically summer in Jerusalem: The lavender and wild rosemary are going gangbusters, we had our first triple-digit day (that’s Fahrenheit), and the lush strawberries in the markets have been replaced by sweet cherries. (Still no limes, but, alas, that is my new reality).

Jerusalem is starting to feel more like home. I’m moving past our blah digs and location (something about accepting the things you cannot change) and I’m discovering hidden gems in Jerusalem (like a great vegetarian cafe with gorgeous views of the Old City walls). And, this is huge: We bought a car! We’re no longer limited to the two wheels of our bicycles. We celebrated by going to the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv with our friends who visited us from Madrid.

This post is nearly all photos, which I hope capture that while Jerusalem may not be the easiest place to live: It’s beautiful. The city and its surrounds are ridiculously photogenic.

And just in time for me getting used to things here, I’m about to leave for six weeks for my bestie’s wedding in Charlottesville, Va., some family time in Michigan, friends and family (and training for Mr. Jerusal-Em) in Washington DC, and, finally, my last grad school residency in Paris. All of these places have limes!

But, when all that’s over, I have a feeling I’ll be ready to get back to Jerusalem.
