My favorite time of day is walking through the shouk as the sun sets and the vendors start singing sale prices. "Strawberries! 8 shekels a kilo!" "Grapes! Grapes! Only 12 a kilo!" "Ten pita for 5! Ten pita for 5!" The accents bounce off the street and blend together until you don't know who is Arab and who is not.

Greetings from the Unholy Land.
