S is for soldiers and sandwiches (or in Hebrew, sandvitchim).
They were sitting just outside the Old City wall.
I think they were getting a head start while "guarding" their comrades' lunchboxes.
I took the photo from across the street so you will have to click once or twice to see the boys better.
Once inside Jaffa Gate they started trekking like Sherpas down the narrow pedestrian-only lanes of the Old City.
The whole group of young soldiers was probably waiting for them at the open square in the Jewish Quarter, where there is room to picnic.
Walking around with a knowledgeable guide, learning about our national heritage is part of soldiers' training in the Israel Defense Forces.
And as Napoleon reportedly said, "C'est la soupe qui fait le soldat," meaning "An army travels [or marches] on its stomach," meaning "a group of soldiers or workers can only fight or function effectively if they have been well fed."
Bon appetit, dear soldiers!
