For readers who asked what one would see from the bench in my previous post, I'll add a few pictures.
Basically you see the four sides of the cloister of the Church of the Redeemer.
They surround a small courtyard with a few trees and flowers, and some ancient archaeological elements are strewn around.
Enlarge the photo to find the opening to the old cistern.
Towering above is the bell tower, the tallest in the Old City.
For a closer view of it see BibleWalks, or see it here lit up by dynamic illumination during the annual summer Jerusalem Light Festival.
This church, built over ancient ones, was completed in 1898.
The dome of the Redeemer Church is also visible from the cloister.
And the little patch of sky above it is going to this week's SkyWatch Friday.
Shabbat shalom, happy 7th candle of Chanuka, and happy new moon/Rosh Chodesh.
