Vignette Vacation: Israel through Photos #4

One visit was all it took for me to fall in love with Yafo.  A second visit on the same trip only cemented the sentiments.  A third and final walk made it difficult to leave.

Yafo (often also addressed as Jaffa) is the old port city south of Tel Aviv, and technically a part of the municipality (that is why it is often called Tel Aviv-Yafo).  The winding alleyways that corner and coil through with city are now filled with artisans and chefs that perfect their trades often before your eyes.  It really is a treat, and I recommend it so highly that it is a twofer photo day!

First is one of my favorites from last year that reminds me Yafo is only a 5k away...

The second is from this year, which shows the Yafo skyline from closer to Tel Aviv.
