A GLORIFIED DISNEYWORLD NEEDS A MONORAIL:
Let there be Light Rail (AVIVA AND SHMUEL BAR-AM, October 19, 2013, Times of Israel)
Posted by Orrin Judd at October 19, 2013 7:21 AMTwo years ago, soon after the Light Rail began operating in Jerusalem, I found myself sitting next to a tourist from Jamaica. After asking me all kinds of questions about the sites visible from the windows, she told me that she was taking the train from one end to the other to get a feel for the Holy City.She certainly had the right idea. For while the Light Rail in other cities is mainly a vehicle for transportation, the Jerusalem version provides riders with a window into thousands of years of the city's rich and turbulent history.
