The visitors standing in the narrow Ein Kerem lane were waiting for their chance to wind their way up through the fascinating old house and eventually emerge on the roof.
This was part of last year's annual Jerusalem Houses from Within.
Above the front door was the event's poster.
That 2012 logo showed a bouquet of buildings.
The list of THIS year's Houses from Within guided tours just now went online--120 locations and the list is still growing!
If you are anywhere near Israel, mark your calendar for November 7-8-9.
A few venues require registration, which begins bright and early online on November 1.
Maybe your own city has a similar Open House event?

In 2014 Athens, Gdansk, San Diego, and Vienna will be joining this wonderful cultural tradition.
