Hajj Doors

So, it's not Friday and I haven't done this in a couple of weeks, but I thought about it today. We were in Jerusalem in 1997 during Eid al-Adha and this picture is the doorway to someone's house/courtyard in the Old City. If a member of the family is going on the Hajj, the door is painted to celebrate the trip and the Hajj.

I like the little girl too.

Oh, and the pictures are of the Ka'aba and the Dome of the Rock and the Shahada is written there, along with Muhammad and God and welcome. Other houses had pictures of airplanes or whatever transportation was used, but this one doesn't seem to.
