And over here you'll see...

Although I paid a pretty penny to tour Nazareth and Galilee, I'm feeling charitable enough to play tour guide for free.  It was a rather whirlwind tour we took, with the amount we saw in the time frame in which we saw it... and I figure I may as well give you that experience as well.  (So, read fast).

Welcome to Nazareth:

Wait... is that good shopping?

Now, before we get to the Christian sites, just let it be known:

Ok, we are presently inside the church of the Annunciation, and have already seen Mary's home. Why don't we look at some of the depictions of the Annunciation of Angel Gabriel to Mary by various countries around the world:

Over in St. Joseph's Church we can see the steps that lead down to a bath area in Joseph's home:

As we leave Nazareth, if you look below you will see the Mount of Transfiguration:

Time for a small rest break...

Moving on!  We've reached Capharnaum, also stated to be "the town of Jesus" - no shorts please.

And finally, the water on which two men walked, the Sea of Galilee:

Don't go too far. This tour's not over. I'm saving the best for last.
