This is the view from our smaller mirpeset, looking out at the traffic circle where Hayarden ends at Hayarkon. There are no traffic lights in Ramat Beit Shemesh; only traffic circles. If you turn right at the end of this street, it goes down the hill to the mercaz, and eventually to highway 38. Turning left will take you either to the back way of Beit Shemesh, or, in the other direction, to Beitar and the tunnel road to Yerushalayim. The rest of Ramat Beit Shemesh is to the right and back of our apartment building.
