Pilgrimage 2009 - Via Dolorosa

After leaving the convent we then started our journey following the Stations of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa. On this part of the pilgrimage, I took very few photographs. Most of these pictures here were taken at other times.
The street is a market place, and as we walked were continually approached by traders. One or two laughed at us and attempted to distract us from our prayers, but most were respectful.
The archway is part of the decoration of the Church of the Flaggelation.

Our journey ended in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and away from the over-decorated, fought-over and challenging places on the journey, we arrived at this chapel - the chapel of the Resurrection. Compared to everything else we had seen as we retraced the story of Jesus' last journey, this was another little place of calm.
