This is a picture taken half way down the steps that link Irsal Street with Al-Quiddis Yuhanna Street that runs parallel to it down the hill. The house on the left is that of the Ackall family (From the sinsileh to the border of Israa Building, the first tree is pomegranate, followed by almond trees, beyond them were apricot,fig, pine,cypras, jasmin, walnut, raspberry and peach trees. We used to live in Ein Misba7 RC, and my father told me that it used to have a soaring and only palm tree in Ramallah that you could use to locate the house from miles away.....I know all this because I, and some of my classmates of the UNRWA boys school, used to raid these fruit trees in the 1970s. By a happy coincidence, I came across a daughter of the house (Reem) on the internet, I confessed and all is forgiven - I hope).
The soaring buildings in the middle are part of Al-Masayef area - lying in a shallow valley, concealing behind them Ein Misbah Refugee Camp area. The distant hills are the Ein Kurzom area which forms the beginning of Al-Tireh.
