Jaffa Old City Tour (28).JPG

Even though I’ve been to Jaffa quite a few times, my last visit to Jaffa unveiled yet another side of Jaffa I somehow haven’t seen before. I imagine that taking a fellow visitor for a local tour of the place, with me feeling very much like a tourist myself, together with the recent revival of […]
