Pianos in Jerusalem

Pianos, so many pianos.

‘Three Days Pianos’ was a festival at

The Jerusalem Theater.

    Not sure if this will reach you…..I am looking for a picture I can have printed and framed of the shuk. I’d like to hang it in my kitchen. Do you have one I could purchase? It would be about 5×7 or 8×10, no bigger. I enjoy your real-life posts and, of course, the pictures. Keeps me feeling like I’m there. Some day I will, God willing, return home!
