Quite a roller coaster week! Funerals for the four people murdered by Hamas terrorists,
a huge end of summer concert in Gan Sacher, Sacher Park,
and the beginning of the new school year.
A girl just off a plane from Eilat, feeling the cooler air as the airport van ascends the mountain road
to Jerusalem, tells the driver as he opens the windows: “it feels like winter”.
All summer, in spite of the heat, a real Jerusalem experience was spending Friday afternoon in
the Machane Yehudah Market,
the Shuk, which is celebrating its 100th year.
A great place to find the basics:
Everything from the pasta
to the people
add color to the the Shuk.
The variety of
and nuts can make it difficult to choose just one.
Serious shoppers push to get their selections of vegetables,
and then have to decide which bread
Even in the summer heat, the number of boxes,
shopping bags and cars can be overwhelming.
You never know who
or what you will find at the Shuk on Friday afternoon.
