ANYway, there is an awesome souk here in Jerusalem that is huge. Our branch president from church and his wife took me and the kids there last week because we had no idea where it was. I loved it so much I took Tom there yesterday (we walked for almost 4 hours straight - holy freakin' moly we were tired). It has a dizzying supply of fresh and dried fruit, nuts, oats, breads, kitchen supplies, meat, spices, and fish. It goes on for many city blocks, and is in a big tent-like structure.
Just a side not, Joni kept saying, "This place smells FUNKY!" She was tired but it sure made us laugh.
I'm wishing now that I would have taken a lot more pictures. These just don't cover it. So I'll have to post more next time we go.
And for your viewing pleasure, I even took a quick video. I feel like it helps you get a better "feel" for it.....
Who is that handsome devil on the left at the end of the video? Oh, yeah, it's my incredibly good looking husband (he pays me to say that).
Speaking of Tom, when I had him proofread this, he started out, "Okaaaaay, the souk, with a 'k'". He was totally annoyed. See, I told you.
