More Photos from Safed

Safed is a town located in the Galilee.
The above and below photos show the view from our Chabad - Hostel "Ascent". Right across, in the mountains, is the village of MERON where Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai is buried.

I had gone to Safed with a friend and we got the "great" idea to explore the new city. We were looking for a shopping mall and asked a local bus driver where to go. He just stared at me but finally we found a bus. We got off at what looked like a mall but found out that Safed has nothing like that. Just buildings with several shops. Eventually we ended up in a supermarket buying some food and eating on the grass across (see photo above).

One of Safed's only shopping streets: "Jerusalem Street".
