Queen Condi is back and making life miserable for the citizens of Jerusalem. They keep shutting down our street so she can run back and forth between her hotel and the PM's home or office. No warning, no schedule, no nothing, just suddenly the street is empty and if you're waiting for a bus or have to get someplace in a reasonable amount of time, well forget it. The queen is about to pass!
Some poor woman came in to use the phone to contact the school and let them know she couldn't reach them to pick up her daughter. She didn't know why the street was suddenly closed down. Condi's black SUV came flying by with police escort. Hope nobody got in its way!
It was even worse when King George was here in January. It would happen at any hour and went on for three whole days. The night before he left I got stuck walking a half hour from the grocery since the buses couldn't come and then was stopped across the sreet from where I live and prevented from going home for another forty minutes while they waited for the king to pass.
I am certainly not looking forward to a repeat performance in May. And that's not even to mention the substance of what they may be doing to us in these meetings while they're here!
If any of the readers happen to be on speaking terms with their majesties, please pass on from the citizens of Jerusalem that we'd just as well they stayed in DC and mess up the traffic there. You elected him, we didn't !
