Tel Aviv, the other world

.
Louis la Vache's meme has reached week 50 already!
Having run out of Jerusalem bridges for his Sunday Bridges, I had to travel clear across the country to find a new one.
.
OK, so you get off the train in Tel Aviv, go up the escalator, and turn right.

You will be entering this long pedestrian bridge that goes over the busy highway.
Inside it everyone is in a big hurry.

It looks like a big shiny tube.
It's so NOT Jerusalem . . . .

Fab photo!!! Love the shot of the tube section. The way you told of the progression made me feel if I was actually doing the walking. This is a neat series.

Terrific photo of the bridge! Reminds me a little bit of the Paris De Gaulle airport. Re. your question on my blog: yes, the windows are already installed in the wall section...must be the ultimate in pre-fab. It has been fascinating to watch the construction from a hole-in-the-ground through its progression so far.

hehe... I know my Jerusalemites love their own city more, but I am a passionate and committed Tel Aviv fan. Just like Melbourne and Sydney, really :)

Great images, it has been a long time, everything is changed...

Funny, but Jerusalem looks more modern than a lot of places here in the U.S. For one thing, you've got a train system and Hawaii is still arguing about it.

I think we need a few walking bridges in the Jerusalem city center once(*if)the light-rail ever really starts running but not like this one in Tel Aviv something more "Jerusalem"

*(hay its been 10+ years, I know they are doing test-runs but regarding this light-rail ONLY seeing it actually run with passengers etc... will make me believe)

nice photos :)

Gotta love Tel Aviv (or the bridge between it and Ramat Gan in this case LOL).

It is neat when cities show off their different personalities in subtle (or not so subtle) ways.

That's quite an interesting tube bridge - perfect for Louis' BRIDGE meme! Someday maybe I can hustle through that tube myself!

Looks as if it would lead directly into another future world.

A safe step ahead and a good new week.

You *had* to travel to Tel Aviv, huh? Oh the things you do for memes... :-)

That sure is a long .interesting bridge. Funny how blogging makes you travel around looking for that special shot.

What a cool bridge!

Great entry, Dina! I like the 'tube'.
