Yaffo or Jaffa is one of the oldest port cities on the Mediterranean. Jaffa has been built upon a high cliff at the foot of which lies the port defended by protruding rocks. Today, Jaffa is part of the city of Tel Aviv.

Our visit there began at the flea market where anything and everything is for sale.

…and everyone is selling something.

Of course you can’t go to the Jaffa without lunch at Dr. Shakshuka’s. It was delicious. Almost as good as the one Eileen makes for me back on Long Island.

We spent the rest of the day wandering around the old city taking in the sights, checking out the flea market, and shooting old/delapidated/decrepid buildings.

Eileen, on the other hand was also busy improving her photography skills. She even hooked up with a local photographer. At least that is what she told me!

Yaffa, a great place to visit. Can’t wait to go back. I hear it’s even better at night!

  1. Well, NY had its first blizzard and it’s really nice (though jealous-making) to come in from the cold and be able to travel
    vicariously with you to Israel through your great photos. And
    to see what fun you’re having!!
    It’s time to wish you both a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR–may
    the fun continue!!
