We found our way back into the city itself and started walking along what appeared to be the main street. As we got deeper into Safed, the neighborhood started to change. Quite by accident we had wondered into the "religious" Jewish Quarter. All the shops were open and busy as "orthodox" families hurried here and there. It was getting a bit late, so we decided to make our way back to the bus station and then to Haifa.
Linda was convinced that, if we continued walking "straight", we'd find the station. A street sign had said "City Entrance" so she reasoned that, if we came in "that way", we'll go back "that way". She was absolutely right!! It turns out that the street had made a huge "circle" and we were able to find the beginning by going to the "end". It was the ultimate proof of "circular reasoning"!! It was a great walk as we discovered a part of town not seen, we think, by many tourists.
Today was a perfect day of exploration. We discovered so much of Israel we hadn't seen before. Safed was a joy to explore and the higher altitude made for perfect, and cooler, weather.
