NABLUS

Nablus is one of the main cities of the West Bank. I was there last week for a couple of days, so I’ll share a few nice pictures with you.

My hosts have a Muslim background, but were not observing ramadan when I was there. I got there about an hour before sunset, so we waited a bit before eating our falafel sandwiches. What I got from people talking to me about Nablus, is that it’s sort of a traditional Palestinian city, it’s not very international or cosmopolitan like Ramallah, but the people who live there are not necesarily traditional. A lot of them don’t fully observe Ramadan, but obviously do in public, otherwise they would risk being arrested by the police.

We went right up a parking lot to take some pictures of the busy streets.

The next day, I got to take pictures from the top of another bilding, and got a good view of the city, that somehow seemed much quieter at 4pm than I had seen it at 2am…

Nablus is famous for it’s Old City and it’s incredible market. Here are a few of the pictures I took.
