Wandering, intentionally lost, in an old neighborhood of Jerusalem (Nachlaot maybe?), I saw two things which my two California blog-"sisters" Elaine and Petrea would appreciate.
I think this is called Shabazi Street.
An answer next to it in white: "Don't know."
This poor old bike, chain dangling, reminded me of Elaine's brand new bike Fifi, lehavdil, vive la difference! Titchadshi (=may you be re-newed by your new possession), enjoy, use it in good health, USElaine!
Like so many old houses in Jerusalem, this one was being gutted. A heap of junk in the yard, even a television. It always makes me sad.
But as I rounded the corner and emerged on a main street, the facade of the old structure gave me hope. The sign says it is being rebuilt as a center for theatre! Even Diss-Is-Culture is involved, an interesting thing to Google.
Actress/blogger Petrea, you'd love it. Good luck on your opening-night play in San Marino on Saturday. Break a leg!
I love Jerusalem. And I love how blogging makes friends of former strangers.
