Israel Day 2
After our walk through the market we went to the old section of Jaffa. The paths were cobbled and the walkways narrow with many beautiful archways and tunnels. Our tour ended down at the Jaffa port/marina and I thought it would be easy to get lost but the streets were marked and there were plenty of signs to guide us to where we wanted to go. We were advised to try a Falafal Bar and I ordered a Sharwama, I think it was called, and the waiter brought me one big plate and then all these little plates and I said "is this all for me?" and he just smiled and nodded. It was pretty yummy and I did a pretty good job of eating it, but not all.
After lunch we went underground for a look at ancient Jaffa and the archeological dig and discovery under the ground. It was quite fascinating but I was not able to get any good pics because it was not well lit and I did not want to start flashing.
We ended our day with a stroll by the sea. I was so pleased to see the succulants growing so close to the water. It was a beautiful thing. We did a good job of exhaustng ourselves and our feet needed a rest so back to the apartment we went.
