Pictures of life in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Hills. And since August 2013 also a look at the northern Negev, my new home.
Just the street name afte an ancient governor as a counterpoint to the modern car is something in itself.
A nice slice-of-life in Jerusalem...lots of veggies!
Some things ring familiar everywhere in the world.I remember awakening to the clop clop of horses pulling wagons of produce-for-sale in my grandmother's West Philadelphia of 50 years ago. Peddlers, Italian and Jewish peddlers. another world. Have we lived so long?And still LOVING it!Shalom & Aloha, my Friend!Comfort Spiral
I can almost feel the anticipation of seeing all the colorful and delicious produce about to be delivered.
I love that streets still bear Roman names. I wonder if this is the same Agrippa who is responsible for the Pantheon in Rome.
Beautiful image of everyday's life. I like this kind of pictures.I'm still thinking of the menschelach: they are so unique and charming!
Katney and Spacedlaw, I agree, it is fun to have historical street names. Our Agrippa(s), grandson of Herod the Great, lived from 10 BC to 44 CE and was king of Judea. He was actually quite well-liked by the Jews. Jacob, funny funny. :)Cloudia, really?! I remember the horse-drawn ice wagon coming through the alley in Chicago. The driver would give us kids little pieces of ice to eat. When I was little we had an icebox. Kay, yeah, and the funny thing is, the restaurant is just half a block from the huge market.Pietro, I'll try to give you more everyday pictures. Hey, you are an artist, maybe you can make some menschelach!
