    Presenting: Jaffa with Vlad

    A mixed Arab-Jewish "city" part of "Tel Aviv Jaffa" municipal rule.
    Arab population consist of Muslims and Christians, hence the many churches.
    Jaffa has an ancient Roman port (not depicted), which was the door to this historically strategic region by different rulers of the land throughout the centuries.

    These first three pictures are of the famous clock tower built, now I discovered, in the turn of the 20th century by no other than a watchmaker.






    This beautiful chapel has real nice clocks. Now I wonder if it has 4 clocks...










    Realty and land in this place is crazily expensive, people with means buy anything and restore. People with yet more means, foreigners mainly, buy property on the slopes leading down to the sea and build palaces from ground up.



    Interesting mural








    Abu El Abed - my favorite Jaffa restaurant - Arab cooking









    One of my favorite dishes - cauliflower slightly roasted and after sprinkled with lemon zest, salt, fresh garlic and parsley





    Coffee and Baklawa filled with nuts to end the meal (or as foreigners call it Baklava)




    Just some artsy pic scenes






    On the one side of the road


    On the other side of the road



    I just discovered this development of the south Jaffa beachfront with promenade. Aparently it's been developed for 2 years but I hadn't visited these parts of Jaffa.





    Palace vs. shanty




    One of the houses being built by the super wealthy on the slope leading to the sea. Love the way this door looks.
    Pity, though, a couple of trees had to be killed, and then maybe 5 trees.




    Got home, with a super-affordable bottle of wine.
    I looked in the supermarket for the cheapest reasonably looking bottle of wine, just for the fun of it. Normally I would pay 3 times that. But I don't normally buy wine.
    Locally made, Efrat winery Cab-Argaman-Carignan blend only $5 / £3.2 / €3.7 .
    Very surprisingly nice wine,
    for the price surpassed my expectations by 1000%.
    Fruity and light, nicely colored, not sour or ultra bitter.
    Finished 2/3 all by myself.

    Guys, I wanted to give you "Vlad visits Jerusalem" too but I don't know when I will be able to travel there as I don't have anything special to do in Jerusalem.
    So Vlad will be on his way soon.
    I highly recommend on letting Vlad tour the Europe region including Russia and UK before moving him to the Americas and then Pacific.

    I think jolurove of Spain is next in line.

    Been lurking around for a good while and this post has sparked my interest. I am a US soldier living in Germany and I would be glad to give him a tour of the military base I am at along with a few of the local sights. (Nurnberg area).

    As a matter of fact I will be returning back to america in very early december permanently and wouldnt mind taking him back to the states personally.

    I'd love to come back to Germany to see how much has changed since I was there from 1989-1991. My old Kaserne in Augsburg has been razed to the ground..... The Cold War was a much different time.
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"

    Great pics of a fascinating day in Jaffa, jackrobinson! What a great time Vlad has enjoyed with you in Israel. Baklava, mmm!
    Onto Jolurove is a good plan, then Europe, though I personally think it would be great to then continue eastwards to Australia, so Vlad does a full circumnavigation. Back to the UK later, to keep the variety going
    I'll re-order my list in post 216 - tomorrow morning now. And I'll add you, zanderanski, your barracks in Nurnberg will be good to see

    Thanks OhDark.
    Yes, east is logical because he has already seen NA and UK.
