East Jerusalem

Foreign tourists, embassy workers and some Jewish Israelis mill among East Jerusalem's largely Palestinian Muslim neighbourhoods. Several well-trodden religious and archaeological sites are here, though some visit purely to experience the rhythms of daily life: busy bakeries, market stalls and the hypnotic sound of the muezzin's call to prayer, louder here than elsewhere in the city.
