Homemade in the Golan Heights

Today I am traveling, but I thought I would share a photo that illustrates one of the educational and sometimes fun things about travel in cultures other than our own. This Arab peddler has set up his table in the Golan Heights at the overlook from Israel into Kuneitra (Quneitra), Syria.

He seems to have a nice variety of the local goodies: olives, olive oil, nuts, and various fruits. Are those pickled eggs? He has already made two sales and it appears he is about to make a third. It can be really chilly in the Golan Heights, even in early May. Some of the potential customers would probably more quickly buy a sweat shirt.
