Markets markets, I do love them. Maybe because I am a woman, who knows? In the heart of the old city you go up and downstairs and follow the shops and markets. There are four different areas for the Arabaians, the Christians, the Jews and the Armenian (hope I write this well) people. They all have a different kind of business. The arabs sell a lot of fruit, toys, jewels (gold) and flesh. (You can see the cows and fish hanging it smells very bad). They Jewish sell more things like drinks, shoes etc. Anyway you will love to be there. At the time I was there like 7 years ago, the different people weren't fighting or anything. They just looked like they were all good friends who didn't bother eachother.
