Investigation of STARS & BUCKS
Last June, my friend Cathy sent me an email entitled "Only in Ramallah", attached to it were photographs of the new "Stars & Bucks Cafe" which had opened up in the center of Ramallah. Today was a sunny but cold day and so I decided it was time to investigate and take my own photos of this coffeeshop which now overlooks the Manara.
This new illumination in the Manara which beckons me at night with its powerful green glow...
I went inside to find out that although the logo is akin to that of "Starbucks", that is where the similarity ends. This is the entrance...once inside you are immediately greeted by a layer of smoke hovering in the air from all the arghiles....
Unlike Starbucks, the menu items here include arghile, as well as other Ramallah restaurant staples such as nachos, chicken fingers, french fries, ice creams and cakes, and a myriad of sandwiches (including of course mortadella). Here is a view of some tasty looking cakes, fruits ready to be turned into succulent juices, and arghiles waiting to be smoked.
The best thing about Stars & Bucks Cafe was the view of the Manara. You can sip your coffee, smoke your arghile and watch the world below you in all its hustle and bustle swirling around the lions.
