My wife came back from her trip to Constantinople and the Holy Land yesterday, safely, thank God. She arrived very early in the morning, in the middle of the night actually, after traveling over 32 hours, with all the flight delays. Her luggage, unfortunately was not with her. Instead it came last night. And with it came all the scents and tastes from the Holy Land. As you see below she brought with her myrrh from the tomb of St. George, wine from Cana, oil from the lampadas of the Holy Sepulchre and Golgotha, water from the Zoodochos Pigi- Font of the Life-Giving Spring and the Jordan River- among other places- and (not pictured) a cutting of the authentic Burning Bush and a piece of the plaster from Hagia Sophia.
