I noticed nothing out of the ordinary in Machane Yehuda and the Center of Town. And the food was so irresistible. And I even used the Women's WC there to see if I hadn't been "just lucky" when I used it previously for review. It was pretty clean, especially considering the traffic/use, but this time no soap. It still ranks in the middle plus as public toilets go.
We also had no problem walking to Sultan's Pool, under the Old City Walls for the Moskowitz Prize for Zionism.
I'm blogging more about the big event on my other blog. Hint! Hint!
