The Western Wall (a.k.a. Wailing Wall) is a famous spot where people leave notes to god, family, friends, etc. generally with their desires, aspirations, and pleas for help, in hopes that someone up there will answer their call and help them out with something (or numerous things) in life. It is a very spiritual place, though it is considered to be an Orthodox Synagogue, so unfortunately, it is still segregated - the women must be separated from the men and have a smaller space next to the wall. Despite my reserves about the segregation, it was an interesting and memorable experience.
We had some time to explore the Jewish Quarter of the Old City before visiting the Western Wall. The architecture was very old and beautiful.
