More from Nazareth

This is just outside the White Mosque. Just after I snapped it, a man walked by and shook his head at us. I find the juxtaposition of the signs strange and fascinating.

This little boy ran up to me in the shuk and pointed at my camera - would I take his picture? I said of course and his beautiful face lit up. He signaled at me to wait a moment while he ran to ask his mother if it was OK. Less than a minute later he was posing.

As promised, the bust of Padre Pio for Nana. This was just inside the gates leading to the entrance of the Synagogue Church: the synagogue is said to be where Jesus preached; a church was later built right beside it. Padre Pio was a welcome face: Nana attributes the miracle of Dad being here to Padre Pio answering her prayers.

On Paulus VI.

To the left of the entrance to the Church of the Annunciation.
