The plaza in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City was pretty quiet when I sat down on one of the benches pictured here to eat my cheese sandwich.
(Click to enjoy the face of youth!)Suddenly the army "invaded"!
All the girl soldiers were listening to the boy soldier lecture. He must have been their tour guide for the day.
Learning about the country and about Jerusalem, including the holy places, is part of every Israeli soldier's training. And you learn by walking in the places.
The "picnic box" for their group must have been heavy. The girls had to put it down and rest several times.
But they did it. They delivered the goods!
