The next few posts will show streets in the Old City of Jerusalem. What you see here, is a street with shops on both sides. I cannot remember streets without shops. Streets could be covered (at places, they give the appearance of tunnels), partly covered, uncovered; or like in this shot where a section is covered and a section not covered. Streets are mostly narrow, with very few streets broad enough for cars to travel.
From my recent posts, you will remember that the Old City has been build against and on top of a hill, hence the steep incline of the street in the picture.
