On the east side of Jerusalem was a market with the palm trees
growing. Numerous unemployed men stood idle in open spaces
adjacent to the market along a crowded street. There were fruits,
vegetables, and various wares. A man had set up a small charcoal
grill on a table and was selling shish-kabob stuffed into some pita
bread. There was a numerous people visiting his booth. The
green items stacked on the front cart were green almonds.
