Bearded Palm Trees and Rawasheen

I love the tall bearded palm trees next to this old building in Al Balad, the oldest area of Jeddah.  I think this is one of my favorite examples of rawasheen because of the lovely color they are painted. Rawasheen are the wooden slatted window coverings so typical of many buildings in this city.

I like the contrast between the trees and the screens.
