So yes, there is definitely much more goodness to my trip to Israel. This evening, we navigated our way to the outdoor market, on the look out for some amazing "I HAVE TO TAKE THIS HOME" baubles. We met some interesting characters along the way, like that dude standing by his store window. How adorable is he? He almost...yes, ALMOST, got me to buy a really hideous velvet scarf (which I thought was totally cute, though Gabbi convinced me looked more like a carpet) for 70 sheks. Ummm, no thank you! But I did end up scoring a really rad silver potion necklace. I have no idea where this guy gets his stuff, but his store was an absolute treasure trove. He probably hated the idea of these foreign girls roaming around his store, oohing and aahing over just about everything in sight. But he did happily smile for photos at the end of our shopping spree...probably because he had about 80 quid in his pockets. Yes, my friend decided to buy the scary troll doll along with some other trinkets that we still believe are haunted. But really all that mattered is that we got our souvenirs! By the way, my friends are total babes, agreed? What I noticed was how effortless their style was. All of their looks were just so easily thrown together. I loved photographing them with my new lens!
