We arrived after dark at our backpackers hostel in Jerusalem. It must have been around 17:00. The entrance is the orange/red door to the left - half hidden among an endless row of shops. This is in the middle of one of the Palestinian parts of the city of Jerusalem. Various parts of the city is dominated by one of the main groups; Israeli's or Palestinians. These groupings are further divided and may mean further divisioning of parts of the city. E.g. an Israeli area may be dominated by either Jews, non-religious Israeli's, Christians, Ethiopian Jews - or such a group. In a similar way, a Palestinian area may be dominated by Muslims, non-religious Palestinians, Christians, Syrians, etc.
The shops in this area seemed to be doing good, as stocking was an ongoing process. I often wondered whether anybody ever went to the trouble of entering new stock into the books. This shop, where you can see the people standing around, inside, is a fresh fish butchery - to the right and out of the picture is a meat butchery.
Even where pictures of the outside, makes the backpackers look dodgy, it was very clean. This recreation area provides a great view (behind me, as I took the picture) and one doesn't have to drag chairs to the parking area, like in Tiberias.
This next picture shows what the street in front of the backpackers looks like one early morning. Interesting 3-wheel carts that they use. Here you can see that delivery of new stock (truck to the right) has already started.
Have a great weekend.
