The Pope has arrived in Jerusalem. The flags of the Vatican are all around Jerusalem. But for us his visit is another traffic nightmare. The road where I live will be emptied of all vehicles tuesday night. No parking is allowed on my street on wednesday, and a whole neighborhood will be completely shut down on that date between 6-9 am and 4-8 pm.
