there are certain signs of the end of summer, 

besides the outdoor performances at the Jerusalem Theater.

Facebook is full of posts of those returning from overseas.

Another summer, time has flown by with visitors and festivals.

 All over Jerusalem, Israel, as every year until school starts, 

  parents will call on extended family and friends or strangers,

or just make it another ‘take your kid to work’ day,  

in all kind of offices, and even banks.

For those with time and energy there is the Bloomfield Science Museum.

 Also, always a good venue for a day trip,

 the Machane Yehuda market, the shuk,

but when it gets crowded, holding on is a great idea.
