December 31, 2004

I returned on Friday, December 31. I hit the peak time for people going to work. The streets were crowded. I photographed people on King George Street, going to work.
December 31 was sunny. Being just before the beginning of the Sabbath, this Friday was hopping. Lots of people on the streets. Lots of shopping. It was prime market day. People lined up for bread at a bakery and bread stand in the Bukharian Market. About noon, the tempo changed. People were on their way home to prepare for the Sabbath. A shopkeeper of religious gear said he closes at 2 p.m. I sensed a rush..
