A bridge for Louis la Vache's new Sunday Bridge Series.
In August (2008) the sun would rise over the bridge just after 6:30, as I got off the bus and started walking up the steep hill to my archaeology work.
The roads were still empty at that hour.
At 2:30 p.m., when I finished work, the traffic looked like this.
The bridge was built recently to give the residents of the Holyland Park apartments quicker access to the roads below as they zip out of their underground parking lot.
Last Sunday I posted about the scandal that had broken about the bribes and fraud involved in getting permission to build so densely and so high into the poor Jerusalem skyline.
Meanwhile, a few days ago previous mayor of Jerusalem Lupolianski was arrested for suspected bribe-taking in the case, and former Prime Minister Olmert is going to be questioned about his suspected part, too.
