Where else should one gauge royal wedding fever in Jerusalem,
than King George V Street?
Though in 1924, it was named King George V Avenue.
The first Friday afternoon after Passover, bakeries were open, but not very busy.
The Bezalel Street Arts and Crafts Fair was running as usual
and across the street people were out on the Mall.
Some tourists were around…
one American man did not know there was a wedding–
and no idea what these guys were thinking.
In one of the shops on King George Street there were plenty
to eat dead skin cells, but not much interest in any wedding…
unless it was his brother’s…
Finally, just off of King George Street, the doors of this pizzeria
are wide open after being closed for the Passover holiday,
and inside there was fresh pizza and… the royal wedding on TV!
Not one Union Jack was to be seen, but Israeli flags are blowing in the wind.
Maybe those hit with a serious case of wedding fever just stayed home?
Mazel tov Kate and Will, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
Nice to chat about the beautiful bride and wedding gown
and for a bit forget about the fires surrounding us.
