Visions trip to the Holy Land

Originally uploaded by Suevisions.
A group of 11 of us went to the Holy Land over the Christmas period (from Boxing day to the 7th January).We visited Jerusalem, Galilee, the dead sea, and then went over to Jordan for a bit, seeing Petra and Jerash (one of the "ten towns" and the river Jordan, before returning to Bethlehem just in time to experience Orthodox Christmas day before returning to York. It was an amazing experience and we took an enormous amount of photos between us. (hundreds every day). Yet it was also a poignant experience as we saw a lot of suffering around us and heard some very sad stories told to us by the Christians who live in the area.
