A black cat finds shade under the table near the monastery's fruit trees.
For today's That's My World Tuesday let's drive north to the Sea of Galilee, to the Greek Orthodox monastery and Church of the Seven Apostles..
"The church marks the site of the ancient village of Capernaum . . . . The village is frequently mentioned in the Gospels and was Jesus' main base during his Galilean ministry. It is referred to as Jesus' own city and a place where he lived. It was in the synagogue of Capernaum where he first started to preach."
But for the last month Israel has been suffering from an intense heat wave, and the only salvation Israelis and many tourists seek right now is how to be saved from the blazing sun..
We are obsessed with finding enough shade to keep from fainting and enough liquids to keep from getting dehydrated..
You smile along with these stones when you discover the little outdoor spigot with a cup chained to it and the reassuring painting which invites you to drink free potable cool-ish water.
What does the sign say in Greek, anyone know?
