Nogah picked me up safely last night, we had a bite to eat and rented a movie to chill a bit after a long travelling day. I read up on what to see and do around Tel Aviv and I decided I wanted to go to Jaffa today. Jaffa is actually not Tel Aviv, but these two cities merged a while back. Jaffa exists for 4000 years, Tel Aviv only since 1909. A huge contrast :)

I don't know why, but when I got to Jaffa it was totally deserted. I walked around these ancients parts all by myself, not a tourist or inhabitant in sight. It was a truely amazing experience seeing this location all like that. It felt as if it was arranged for me like this :) It started raining at some point, but I didn't care at all, it kind of contributed to the feeling of the place :) I was kind of trigger happy with the camera. But I'm happy with the results :)

The Wishing Bridge; if you touch your zodiac and look at the sea. You can make one wish :)
