DAY 5 Jericho to mar saba

We start the day by taking the mini-bus to Nabi Musa where the prophet Moses is reputed to be buried. Then we cycle a short distance to the edge of the Jerusalem Wilderness. Then we walk across the desert to the Monastery of Mar Saba. This is a very dramatic landscape inhabited by Bedouin, camels and goats. After visiting the Mar Saba Monastery we'll take the minibus to Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity. Overnight in Bethlehem preceded by a sumptous meal at the Tent Restaurant in Beit Sahour.
