Water from the earth

All you City Daily Photo Blog writers are having so much fun with your WATER Theme Day today. Maybe I should try to join the community. Meanwhile, can I play too?!
Jerusalem has no body of water but the Jerusalem Hills have many springs. Here is the closest one, right down at the monastery. John the Baptist in all likelihood drank here.
What a primeval pleasure to drink cold clear water emerging straight from the rock.

Wouldn't that be something if John the Baptist drank here?! That water has been flowing a long, long time. Neat photo.
