The old bench in bright sun
The old bench at the entrance is about the only thing in the dim and cavernous Church of the Holy Sepulchre that ever gets direct sunlight.
Here is the bench as seen from Calvary, one flight of steps up.
More about it at http://jerusalemhillsdailyphoto.blogspot.co.il/2009/08/simple-bench-in-complicated-church.html .
Since moving to Meitar in the Negev desert last August I quite miss being about to roam around the Holy Sepulchre and the Old City at will.
UPDATE: Read the fascinating story of the two Muslim families entrusted with the key to the Holy Sepulchre since 1187!
