First prime lens -- 24mm or 35mm?

Almost all my photography is done when I'm traveling and almost all of it is street photography, capturing the local way of living, emotions, etc. I have a 50D and have 17-55 f/2.8, 24-105 f/4 L, 70-200 f/4 L, and for the first time, I'm considering getting a prime lens. On my last trip to the Middle East (Lebanon, Jordan, Syria), I primarily used the 17-55 f/2.8 and in fact, never used the 70-200 f/4. I want a fast lens to be able to shoot in low light as well as to create the depth of field I often want. I'm looking at either the 24 f/1.4 L or the 35 f/1.4 L. I think the 50 F/1.2 is not going to be wide enough for my crop. For those with experience with either then 24 or the 35, any advice, comments, suggestions?

Happy Thanksgiving!
