We were staying in the Jewish quarter, so decided to eat at a Jewish restaurant. Fantastic food, if not strictly kosher.

Next day we finally entered the mosque, which has been rechristened as a Catholic church. Below the fold is a set of photos that should give you an idea of how Christian and Muslim were oddly juxtaposed.
