Here's a post for both SkyWatch Friday and Weekend Reflections.
I got off Jerusalem's new tram at its terminus, Mt. Herzl, and transferred to my bus home.
I have learned the hard way that each of the two carriages can, and usually does, carry 250 passengers!
Most of us are standing, or trying to.
BUT, the tram, inside and out, is very good for reflections, as witnessed in the top photo.
See the famous "Calder red" color?
Across the street from the tram station stands, once again, Calder's huge "Homage to Jerusalem--Stabile."
It had to be moved while they were digging the underground park-and-ride garage, which has still not been finished.
The blue sky is typical for Israel's long and dry summer; it is normal to have no rain for 5 or 6 months.
To learn more about the sculpture and see some funny photos of its patchwork paint job, see previous posts.
