Geometry in Jerusalem

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week: «Share a photo that means GEOMETRY to you!» So, I chose these photos from two different parts of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

The bridge is called גשר המיתרים (The Strings Bridge), while the graves on the photos is shot at The British War Cemetery (בית הקברות הצבאי הבריטי בירושלים) in Jerusalem. The cemetery is located between הגבעה הצרפתית (The French Hill) and האוניברסיטה העברית בירושלים (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) on Mount Scopus. By the way: someone told me that the The French Hill has nothing to do with France, but that it’s named after some guy named French.

  4. Cool!!!
    BTW…Seems to be there are 2 stories about “French Hill”…Some people say it is named after a British general (but the general never had his HQ at this place)…The other version is that is named after French catholic monks who had a Monastery here…(I myself trust this version …)

    • I read about the two theories on Wikipedia, but in the story I’ve heard Mr. French was never a British general, just some guy that had a piece of land and lived there. But, I agree with you: the French catholic monks seems like a plausible story.

  5. OW! I wish one of the geometry pictures is much bigger and not part of the collage just to see it clearer. Anyway, kept me interested so it must be good! 😀
