In and Around Jerusalem

With Chol Hamoed Pesach (the indermediary days of the Passover Festival) upon us, millions are off of work, yeshivot and schools are empty, and I find myself wandering around the city. So I snapped some random shots.

The bridge is coming along now. You can see it from almost anywhere in the city.

A shul in Har Nof (Chareidi Neighborhood)
Flags are coming out, Independence day is coming up.
The public burning of the chametz (leaven products forbidden during Pesach.)
Ad for tours during Pesach.

And today I went hiking through the forests east of Jerusalem.

A natural spring East of Ein Kerem

A wandering scorpion

Looking towards Mevasseret Tzion

We came across a lool (chicken coop.) Life behind bars, no parole.
