Jaffa/יָפוֹ: A Photo Journey

Jaffa or Yafo, an ancient port city just south of Tel-Aviv, is thought to be the oldest ports in the world.  DH and I spent the day there, mostly eating and sightseeing, but of course I couldn't pass up the deals in Shuk Hapishpeshim either. 

Hey, I wanted the unabridged version!

I couldn't agree more

Stumbled upon this little find on our excursion.
St. Peter's Monastery, built in 1654 over a 13th Century citadel.


Our view from the restaurant, not too shabby, eh?

Sheshbesh, an Middle Eastern favorite pastime.

Hookah, another favorite Middle Eastern pastime.

Shopping at Shuk Hapishpeshim, my favorite pastime.

We heared the Friday evening call to prayer as we left marking a beautiful end to our day in Yafo.


  1. You did a great job capturing Yafo. I live about 10 minutes (driving) from there, and the man and I often go when we can't think of anything else to do. :-P

  2. Thanks Joe!

    Rachie, I was impressed by Jaffa and DH and I are going back this weekend!

  3. Great photos! There really is so much to see there.
