On the road from Jerusalem to Jéricho... - Pâques 1985

 

 

The ruins of an old inn can still be seen on the roadside. A camel is regularly in attendance for tourists to take a ride and they seldom fail to avail themselves of this pleasant treat. Seen here John De Ridder on camelback...

 

 

 
 

The Wadi Qilt leads through the hills of Judea down into the plain of Jericho. Its aqueduc which was built by Herod the Great and restored by the British during their Mandate, supplies water all the year round. The Greek Orthodox Monastery of St George clings to the hill side. The water of a rivulet flowing down the slope of the hill from a spring, is channelled to the monastery.
