One of the most interesting things about Safed are the local people who live there. You get all sorts of curious combinations of origins and accents, dressed up in traditional religious clothing reflecting their sects.
The one I liked the most – by far – was this Yemen guy who runs a hand-made type of pizza shop in one of the main streets of the old city. My sister, who is a tour guide and takes groups to Safed’s old city, has known him for a long time as a prominent tourist attraction. It’s not only how he’s dressed up and his charming personality, it’s also his passion for making his special pizza accompanied by Yemenite music, singing and lots of smiles.
Here, watch this next video of the guy and his craft…
I couldn’t get enough of this guy, so I shot him and his little place from all possible directions.
