  Yaffa Gate
by Carmela71

Favorite thing: We woke up early, even if at the end breakfast time took us more that what we though lol, as it normally happens and drove to Jerusalem.

Even if the distance is less than 60 kms, it too us more than two hours driving as we could not took the straight road, as it pass trough Palestinian territory.

One of my memories there, is to be in the little streets of the market, completely alone, jsut the five of us, and the sellers. So you can imagine how active they got trying to get us to buy something (as usual only me bought something lol). I feel really sorry to see how political problems can affect so much to the society, as tourist has gone down so badly. As I live in a tourist town, I know how bad that can afect. I hope Israel gets soon the tourist position as this lovely country deserves, and of course the peace.

Fondest memory: Entrance to Yaffa Gate
