Old Jeddah

video

As promised, here's a short video that gives you a glimpse of the souk (marketplace) at the center of Old Jeddah. In the background you can hear the imams issuing the call to prayer. People are hurrying to close their shops and get to the mosque.

It looks like the market in Tunis, where we were on honeymoon. Despite of the relatively dirty streets, I liked it and I hope that we'll return in the future.
I find the strong faith of the arab people honorable.

Yes, It reminds me of Tunis as well. I was there for a month in 2000 and thought it was beautiful.

I agree; the desire to know and please God is admirable.

Thanks for being such a faithful visitor to my site. I hope you had a great Christmas, and I wish you and yours a very happy New Year.
