Through the “Fake Shuk” (Jerusalem, Part III)

We left off, in my last post, in the middle of the fake shuk.  Now we continue, all the way the end of the street.

This is the second turn into the main shuk.

Then we pass another housewares/paper goods store . . .

. . . and a store selling nuts and dried fruits (as well as the third, and last, turn into the main shuk).

Someone else has just received a delivery . . .

A store that sells legwear and accessories.  To the left is a store selling only accessories, with a wider variety of them.

An outdoor cafe.  It seems a bit too fancy for the surrounding stores, but it is just as busy.

A store selling kippas, the religious headcovering for men.  This store carries a wide variety – wide enough that someon from almost any religious stripe can find something in their style.

And a new juice bar.  It is too fancy, and too American-style, for the surrounding area, which is probably why I have almost never seen anyone actually buying there.  Chances are, the chain (of which this store is a part) will go out of business soon.  I have to say, I’m waiting for that day to come.  Israel has its own unique flavor, and American-style stores just ruin that uniqueness.

We will turn the corner in the next post.
