Going in Circles

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear “Talpiot Industrial Zone”?

For some people it’s the car garages, others it’s the supermarkets, the malls, bowling, discos, small industry shops, hi-tech companies (if you were around for that period of time), or the wedding halls.

For me, and don’t laugh now, the first thing that comes to mind is traffic circles.

Whether you are on Yad Harutzim Street, or Pierre Koenig Street, guaranteed you’ve been stuck waiting at one of the many traffic circles concentrated in the 3 three block radius that includes 3 4 5 I don’t know how many traffic circles.

And either you’re stuck waiting to get onto one, or your trying to get safely off it without hitting the car forcing his way in, in front of you.

To paraphrase the Talmud: 10 portions of traffic circles were allocated to Jerusalem, Talpiot took 9 of them (figuratively speaking).
