Most of our luggage became very heavy after shopping for souvenirs last night. But who cared? We didn’t need to carry them around as we continued our pilgrimage. 😛 (and actually, mine didn’t gain much weight. I have a feeling that I have that ‘stingy backpacker’s look’. Even the vendors don’t usually target me. 😅)
Our first stop today was Church of Bethlehem Nativity.
Just a side story: I invited my group mates from this pilgrimage trip to my second solo photo exhibition. When one of them saw the above photo (the cross), she froze. I said, ‘you were there too! In fact, you were standing right next to me when I took this photo.’ She is also a photography enthusiast. Then she said, ‘but your photo has so much feeling in it.’ I just checked. It took me 4 minutes to find the right spot to take this photo. Each photo I put in my exhibition comes with my effort and heart. I’m glad someone appreciates my works. 😊
We were given the scriptures at the beginning of this pilgrimage and we read them while we followed The Way of the Cross.
Each station is hidden behind or beside some vendors who sell postcards and other souvenirs.
We travelled back to our lodging with heavy hearts that night.
