Photo Friday – Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem

17 Aug

*Right now we should be getting ready to cross the Thorung La Pass on the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal.  Cross your fingers for us, this sucker is nearly 18,000 feet!*

The Dome of the Rock, in Jerusalem, is particularly gorgeous because of its vibrant tile-work in the midst of the white stone buildings that surround it.   We’re always blown away by the tile and mosaic work that is common in Islamic architecture, and this is one of the few buildings that is decorated on the outside just as intricately as most others are on the inside.
