Walking in Al Balad

A worker pushes a cart in Al Balad, Jeddah's old part of the city which is home to the old souks where real deals can be found.  I love the traditional green wooden lattice window coverings on this building as well as the brown ones on the building on the left.  They are called rawasheen.

They really are beautiful architectural features!

The green lattice work is very attractive, even if to me, it looks like weathered copper.

Do you know what kind of wood is used? Thanks!
