Healthy exercise at Hadassah/Hebrew U. (?)


So which would you chose--to sit on the benches or on the exercise machines?

They were installed a few years ago and I have never once seen anyone using them.

The free outdoor "gym" is right next to the National Medical Library at the Hadassah Ein Kerem medical center.
The Hebrew U. medical and dental students study at Hadassah.
I'm sure they have no time and no energy for a daily workout.
Hmm . . . and what is my excuse? 

Reading all these cautions about using the machines is enough to scare away anyone but Superman.

Anyway, those contraptions bring to mind the tortures of the Inquisition.
Just kidding. Sort of.

Interesting to see an outdoor gym. It reminds me of the one at Muscle Beach.

Wonderful. Learned that a short walk or alike during midday break is many times refreshing indeed.
Please have a good Tuesday.

"The Jewish collective memory is often a hard thing to bear when it rises to the surface. "

If all the so called intellectuals and statesmen UNDERSTOOD the wisdom this sentence alludes to - well, they would be almost as smart as they think they are - and closer to being useful in the Middle East.

Thank you
