City feature: Yafo

This is Yafo or Jaffa, the second half of the area known as Tel Aviv-Yafo. Historically it’s always been a port city and today you can see the ancient ports as well as the modern docks. Its residents are both Arabs and Jews and has a healthy list of places to see and things to do, though it certainly does not get the kind of attention its other half across the beach enjoys. Its known for its gardens, art studios and galleries, fishing harbor, and of course – Jaffa oranges.

I only have three photos which, alone, probably don’t do the place justice.
