We are traveling with DayStar a Christian TV station.  There are the DayStar singers that perform at various stops.  When they were performing on the stage in the Roman Theater, it was easy to hear them clearly without amplification.

It is the remains of a Roman toilet.  There is a channel underneath that water would run continuously through, taking away the waste.

In various spots throughout the ruins, the floor was decorated with beautiful mosaic tiles.

On the way through our next stop. we drove by a Arab community.  It is great seeing a group of Muslims leaving in peace, and being accept enough to have a community within Israel.  Notice the minaret that stands above the mosque.
