Gates to a smaller world

.
Step through the open gates into the magic world of puppetry.
Just inside the stony entrance is the small amphitheater of the Train Theater in Jerusalem's Liberty Bell Park.

(The building behind it is the Inbal Hotel. You can watch Jerusalem on their live webcam!)
.
August 14-19 they will be having the 20th International Festival of Puppet Theater.
.
These gates are for Monday Doorways and the special world is for That's MyWorld Tuesday.

Very nice contrast with the gate against the stone wall. I've seen lots of photos of Jerusalem and it seems the city is full of wonderful gateways and windows. Enjoy the day.

Sounds like a place to take our 3 daughters for a puppet show!

Yes, we did stand for the entire hour of vespers at the Orthodox church in Eagan.

There are so many puppets around in real life... OK, I'll stop here!

I like how they put all the walls. Looks like it's a maze. ^_^

Monday Doorways

Many years ago I was on puppet, but I would think it would be exciting behind these gateway.
Happy week!

This must be seen by all children in the world( and adults) I saw your gate and wanted to see what was behind it, so I came across all the creative performing people. I read:"An International Exposure for Puppet Festival Directors from all around the world, will take place as a part of the festival. Among the attending countries are The Netherlands, Germany, India and more." That will be a great happening!

That looks like a relatively small door to the small world... behind large walls! :-)

Ah... Now puppet theaters bring back some memories. Kinda spooky too.

I really love to see the snippets and nooks and crannies of Jerusalem you show us. All places I have no hope of seeing for myself. Thank you.

What a lovely photo with so much contrast in textures and geometrics. I like the unknown aspect as to what is beyond the entrance.

Wow, I went to the webcam and could watch cars passing along the road - that's amazing!

That's a beautiful gate, Dina.

ah how beautiful Dina, in the enchanted part of Jerusalem and in our hearts.
I enjoyed my visit to the TRain Theatre. I will have to send and write them a fairy tale in the hopes that they will at least read it.
