…ash with that?
Loved it. That certainly wouldn’t fly in most places we’ve been, but that’s part of the character that made “The Shuk“, and Jerusalem, so unique. And if you follow the Wikipedia link, you’ll note in the upper right corner a picture of the market on Friday. Busy doesn’t even begin to describe it, as it seemed that all of Jerusalem had made the trip to the market to get their goods before the Shabbat started.
It was crowded.
Which made for fun sport photo shooting.
And gave us a real feel for the people. Lots of fresh, fresh, fresh foods. And few overweight people. Unless you counted the tourists.
Speaking of, we heard more American English being spoken during our week in Jerusalem than we ever had in our travels around Europe or Asia. A lot more.
BTW, I found the source of my frustration with image quality. Firefox.
Very frustrating, since that’s been my go-to browser for six years now. But I loaded this blog in IE, Chrome and Safari and the images are just as crisp as the ones I uploaded. I even found a config tweak for Firefox that was purported to improve the quality, but it doesn’t seem to work. Hmmmmm.
I guess I’ll have to go back to my previous configuration of Firefox for casual browsing, Safari for quality image viewing (since Safari actually supports color profiles).
