      Jerusalem, Another Perspective


      Yesterday I found myself waiting for a friend on that new road, which goes from Binyanei Ha'uma to the area of the Knesset and Israel Museum. As usual, I try to keep busy when waiting, so I took some pictures.

      There's a great dynamic in Jerusalem. Things are always changing.

      The area I was standing is a popular "pick-up/drop-off" for driving teachers. Nothing's boring in Jerusalem.
