Abu Haloom sells fresh fruit at his stand in the Balata refugee camp. His watermelon-balancing skills are a recognizable spectacle for the people of nearby Nablus and Ramallah.
Whoever says watermelon isn’t their favorite fruit is lying to you. This photograph makes me want to book a flight to the West Bank (even though I won’t get in) just to buy a cold, crisp watermelon wedge from this man.
