The view from your window

The Knesset, as seen from my balcony:

In the foreground is the Monastery of the Cross. The tall building in the background is the Crowne Plaza Hotel, which has inspired many legendary snarky comments ("The best view in Jerusalem is from the Crowne Plaza, because it's the only place where you can't see the Crowne Plaza"; "Jerusalem's middle finger"; "If they have to blow up one building..."), but is also home to what may be the only kosher meat Indian restaurant in the world (since the vast majority of kosher Indian restaurants are vegetarian), so it can't be all bad.
