We took a bus full of English speaking and some Spanish speaking Olim (new immigrants) for a day trip to Yerushalayim, to Jerusalem. I did my best not to blurt out anything too controversial as had I, the wrong ears would have heard me and it would not have served any purpose beyond pushing people past their comfort zones. The first pictures are from our visit to the Supreme Court where it was stressed that anyone from anywhere could bring any case against the Israeli government, could be heard and that was the supposed court of last resort. The question I would have liked to have asked but restrained myself was where does one turn when their problem has to do with the Supreme Court?
These next set of pictures were taken on Ammunition Hill.
These last set of pictures were taken at the Hertzl Museum
and gravesite including the part of the entire trip
I had hoped to visit and give due honors, the grave of Ze’ev Jabotinsky.
We wish to explain our delay in posting and missing one more day than we had hoped. We blame age and the mileage accumulated. People will often claim that their physical limitations have to do with the mileage but having experienced the limiting factors both to bring to the table, we advise you take stock of those making the claim and with few true, blue exceptions they are all usually older than you, unless it is two compatriots joking around, and then they are both older than the observers, but it is not just the age or the mileage but some horrific and devilish combination of the two. Please accept these old crooked bones’ apology.
