Old City of Jaffa/Port

For my first five months here in Israel I had the pleasure of living less than a fifteen minute walk from the old city of Jaffa. My brother and I would normally venture there on the weekends. Especially when we were hungry (on Shabbat when mostly all the restaurants and grocery stores included are closed), the old city would save us with some delicious falafel or hummus. In Aaron’s case, both. 🙂 Besides the food, Jaffa is absolutely a treat to walk around! It has so much history and is so alive. Walking through its narrow stone-covered passageways I always felt transported back in time.
