The landscape of Jerusalem, Israel, is constantly changing,
with new structures
towering over the old.
Just before the bad weather began in December,
workers were busy on top of new Cinema City Complex.
Remember the old photos of Gan Sacher, Sacher Park?
This is the scene now,
with those large trees cut back to tall stumps.
But it does allow a clear view of the roof and foot bridge
and the future train station at the Cinema City Complex.
Israel has long been known as land “flowing of milk and honey,”
but Jerusalem now seems to have become the city of ‘flowing mulch.’
While the snow has finally melted,
the mountains of tree trimmings are still being collected
and being churned up into mountains of mulch.
However, no fire-wood logs seem to stay around for long.
The protesters of prisoner release have gone from the streets,
and their signs are removed.
Bus loads of protesters have arrived from Tel Aviv to protest
the detention and deportation of illegal foreign workers.
The Jerusalem streets are constantly changing.
