The duality of women

Kiran, Sofi and I head down to the Temple Mount in Old City Jerusalem to pray in the Dome of the Rock / al-Aqsa Mosque for Eid al-Adha.

 

The streets of Jerusalem cannot be compared to any other location I've seen... steps, steps steps. Stones, stones, stones. Shops, shops, shops. It's both quite beautifully ancient as well as somewhat disorienting.

 

There are often times opposites walking down the streets. A Hasidic Jew walking side by side (though not talking) with a Muslim Sheikh.

 

But in this photo, two Muslims walk in the same direction... but with very different expressions.

 

I very, very much enjoyed their company :D
