We walked through the old city enjoying the ambience and finally ended up at the water front with terrific views of Tel Aviv from there. We walked along the sea wall to the old part of Tel Aviv, Neve Tzedek. Neve Tzedek was the first Jewish neighbourhood to be built outside the walls of the ancient port of Jaffa.For years, the neighbourhood prospered as Tel Aviv, the first modern Hebrew city, grew up around it. Years of neglect and disrepair followed, but today, Neve Tzedek has become one of Tel Aviv's latest fashionable and expensive districts
After wandering around for a bit we returned to the hotel to get ready to head out for our farewell dinner with our group. Most of the group would be leaving later tonight or tomorrow, although a small part of the group were continuing on to southern Israel with a side trip to Petra. The restaurant , back in Jaffa , served kabobs and other Middle Eastern side dishes. Not one of the finest restaurants we dined in but it did the job. We were joined by a large cockroach who I spotted dining on a side dish of shredded carrots on our table. We managed to get him out of there and on to his next life but it did make us look at the food sideways.
After the meal we said good byes to most of the travellers and called it a day.
