We ventured into the Jerusalem Markets – an great mix of interesting people & marketplace.
The people of Israel were welcoming to American tourists and glad that we were visiting – tourism has dropped significantly due to local violence.
We considered staying home and are really glad we visited.
This was one of the best overseas trips we’ve had.
In addition to the traditional cafes dishing Middle Eastern and Jewish cuisine, there are joints selling fish and chips, tofu burgers and Indian vegetarian, plus an Italian place around the corner that serves bruschetta with sardines.
The entrance to the market might as well have a sign at the entrance reading: “Look at you! You’re skin and bones. Eat!”
The market was a great peak into Israeli Life – and a short walk from our Jerusalem Hotel. L’chaim!
