Postcrossing Incoming! Israel

This postcard came from Marina, an Ukrainian girl in Jerusalem. As an atheist, I was more attracted to the cool stamp with a Bell AH-1 Cobra helicopter and the pretty illustration of a flower, than the postcard itself, titled "The Holy Land. In the footsteps of Jesus". 

Esta postal vino de Marina, una ucraniana en Jerusalem. Como ateo, me gustó más la genial estampilla de un Bell AH-1 Cobra, y el lindo sello ilustrado con una flow, que la postal misma, titulada "Tierra Santa. Por los pasos de Jesús".

The postcard, despite its religious title, is still a really pretty card, with great views from Jerusalem, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee and something I had not thought about before: Bethlehem in Christmas, including a Christmas tree that seems to me very out of place, historically.

La postal eso sí, a pesar de su título religioso, no deja de mostrar hermosas vistas de Jerusalén, Nazaret, el Mar de Galilea y algo en lo que no había pensado antes: Belén en Navidad, con un lindo árbol de Navidad que me parece históricamente fuera de lugar.
