Beit Hanina, Jerusalem
View Larger Map
I visited this area in 2010 and stayed in a room we fondly called the bunker. This was because we weren't used to sleeping in a room with iron doors and a blast shield on the window, but by all accounts it's standard in these parts when it comes to new buildings.
I remember seeing these green skips about. People filled them with rubbish and then burnt it all out. Quite a sight when they were going but also a real kicker for the environment. You can see all the crap in the background and that is actually one of many endearing memories of the trip.
If you turn around on the view you will see a wall covered in graffiti.
