Tourist tip #69 / Jerusalem Light Rail
It arrived a bit late and a bit over budget, but the Jerusalem Light Rail is a big, sleek step in addressing the holy city's hellish traffic.
For nearly a decade, Jerusalemites prayed for its completion. Over budget and delayed by the occasional archaeological find, the project became something of a nationwide joke. Finally, in August 2011, the Jerusalem Light Rail took its maiden voyage along a track not quite nine miles long.
