Welcome back to my adventures in Israel. In my last post I shared about my morning spent in Jaffa or Yafo, so here is the rest of that day. You might have noticed from my previous posts that I don't spend a lot of time sitting down on holiday, and this was no exception. As we walked via the beach from Tel Aviv to Yafo, for the way back we decided to walk through some of the built up districts. This meant we were able to do a little street art tour too.
To start with we stopped at Ha Tachana, which is Tel Aviv's old train station, that has been turned into an upmarket boutique style shopping centre with cute cafes, which was a nice place to stop for an ice cream and rest .
In Jerusalem, a lot of the street art was confined to market shutters, in Tel Aviv, there was certainly an area that much of the street art was confined to, but it was more of an industrial area. Unfortuntately there was a lot of graffiti too, but we stuck to photographing what we thought looked good, there was even an artist in mid spray whilst we walked around, but decided to leave him to it.
This last bit of street art took us to where the Nahalat Binyamin craft market is, be sure to visit it on a Tuesday or Friday, it is quite a long market and you can buy some beautiful hand made products.
Just off this market is Shuk Ha Carmel, this is your more traditional hustle and bustle, a sight not to be missed.
