Waking up at around 3 in the morning was tough but it was amazing to see the sunrise over Jerusalem. This has been a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long time and I’m finally here. This is nothing like I expected it to be. The golden dome was beautiful and it made me realize how amazing this place is. I can’t wait to explore this place with everyone and experience the different cultures. I really hope I can get a Star of David necklace here to connect me to the Jewish homeland.
