On The Move in Jerusalem

Now that the lightrail is "in training," you never know when you'll see it in action.  Last Thursday night, on my way from Jerusalem Central Bus Station to Kraft Stadium for the IFL football game (our team, the Jerusalem Lions, lost to the Gush Etzion Rebels) I got to film the train in action as it began to go up the bridge.

And then we went to the game.  There was a carnival atmosphere during half-time.

After the game, we got a ride to the Hizme checkpoint from some other parent/fans.  Within a very short time we squeezed in the backseat of a car going to Ofra.  If we hadn't lost weight, we never would have fit in with a very full-sized neighbor of ours.  Then at Ofra we all got another ride and again the three of us squeezed oursleves in.  Please don't ask about seatbelts....

Cool! Thanks I've wanted to film it for friends who moved away and can't believe the train is actually doing test runs - thanks for the clip now I have proof to send them:)
