A Rare View of the Talpiot Industrial Zone
Well, rare for me, that is.
Last week, after the demonstration against the segregated bus lines, I took a bus to work, which is located in the Talpiot industrial zone. This particular bus stopped just outside the industrial zone, so I had some walking to do in order to reach my destination. I didn’t mind. I can always use the exercise, it was a beautiful day, and I had my camera with me.
And so, without further ado, here are some of the pictures that I took on the way to work:
The Egged bus depot, where many of Egged’s buses go to sleep at night:
A large, full-service fuel station at the entrance to the industrial zone, complete with a taxi stand:
A tire-pressure chart in Hebrew and English, by make and model of the car:
A used-car lot called New Chicago Cars. (Someday I’ll get up enough courage to ask the owners why they chose that particular name.)
A wild tobacco plant, Nicotiana glauca, growing by the side of the road.
