.one too many.

…a place for waste…

Joppa is a place. Part two.

with one comment

there’s not much to it really.

a couple hundred denizens.

a couple dozen horses.

two handfuls of churches.

one mosque.

one pond full of tires.


one naked homeless woman that everyone told me about but I never saw (alas)…

there’s no school.

there’s no supermarket,

no barbershop

and no restaurant.

there’s not a whole lot of anything.

there’s some crime, some drug abuse and some very poor families living there


none of it feels extreme.

I guess,

that’s just it.

on paper,

there’s not much to tell you about.

but the truth is,

I’ve never been to a place with quite as much identity as Joppa.

picture that.

dog life!
