American Colony Morning

Shabbat before last we went to have coffee with our friend Kobe, his parents, and our new friend Sharon. We met at the American Colony Hotel. The American Colony Hotel is just an amazing place - full of interesting history and beauty. They have a cool website, so be sure to check out the links about if you have time. (It has music too, fyi.)

Kobe is a religious studies professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was once an trainer for tour guides in Jerusalem and moreover he remembers everything. So touring with him is a lot of fun and informative.

This is the view of the roof top patio as photographed from a hallway window in the hotel. Nice, huh?!

This is a photo of the ceiling in the Pasha Room of the hotel.

Here's some ceiling detail.

This picture was also taken in the Pasha Room. There's an upright piano and hanging above it is a plasma TV. I thought that this was pretty Israeli - old and new together.
