Jerusalem, Capital of Israel - 12

The main entrance to the arab quarter of the Old City is through the Damascus Gate. The name for it, as with the Jaffa Gate, was given because the road from it out of the city led directly to Damascus and Jaffa respectively. Just inside the Damascus gate is an open area where many vendors bring their daily produce (usually of vegetables, but who really knows what else).



Public transportation in Jerusalem with the buses and light rail is very efficient (except when they're the target of terrorism)



The Mahane Yehudah market:
