I went to church a lot when I was a kid; twice on Sunday, Wednesday night, and occasionally in between. My dad taught at the school that was part of the church too so we were there All, The, Time. This scene reminded me a lot of myself at that age during a long church service. I watched this boy playing in the fountain by the wailing wall in Jerusalem for about five minutes while several other people came and left.
I'm not making any commentary on religion here. I find it interesting that the more I travel, the smaller the world gets because people really are very much the same the world over.
