Israel: The Muslim Quarter

Here are some photos taken in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City in Jerusalem. Full of shops, great restaurants, and culture, this area of Jerusalem is one of my favorites to walk around in. Many of the ancient roads are quiet only spotted with a person here and there and some are bustling, stocked full of storefronts and shoppers. Heading into this quarter, there are two items that I recommend you spend your money on — fresh kenafeh (a Palestinian sweet made of very fine vermicelli-like pastry) and fresh spices.
