I could not sleep the first night in Jerusalem, therefore I went to investigate the way of the cross—Via Dolorosa—at 4.00 a.m. The Via Dolorosa is the path that Jesus passed on the way to his crucifixion, carrying his cross.
Streets of the city were empty in this time, and you can hear only your steps, muezzin’s call to prayer, church bells ringing and cock’s songs. Yes, yes, a cocks in the center of the big city! Under such an accompaniment, you will walk on the way of the cross.
It was my first attempt, and it was only half successful. I have not find the entrance to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and there where no people around to ask the way.
