Picture of a baby, presumably the child of the owner, in a coffee and sweets shop in the Druze town of Majdal Shams, Golan Heights. (I liked the way the photographer thought it would be cute to have the baby emerging from a cabbage.) The shop sells a variety of Arabic sweets called Baklava (check out the link for a post about Baklava in Nazereth) and my favourite, Knafeh, which is supposed to have originated in Nablus but is found all over the region.

Most of the non-home-baked goods for sale in the store (kids’ party supplies) were Israeli but I liked the inclusion of the giant Italian Baci chocolates you can see here on the shelves. The aerial photo is a picture of the town, which is on the slopes of Mount Hermon, in winter a ski resort.
