Unforgettable days in Israel 以色列燦爛假期

Days in Israel continued in the north part. It's the week long Sukkot holiday, to avoid traffic my artist host Betty and I took the early train to The Old City of Akko. The city is 2-hour train ride from Tel Aviv. It's recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Crusaders captured the city and the Ottomans lived here for centuries. We passed through the fascinating history the legancy left behind by its conquerors. The El-Jazzar Mosque, the ruins, the fortresses, the alleyways, the port and the colourful Arabrian surroundings are so impressive.

The remains and the ruins

Passing the history of alleyways......

Wall decoration of old and new....

The fishing net

The port and the Arabrian fishmen

Invite to have a seat?

The Underground Prisoners Museum 

Nowadays the cafe lined alley

What a marvellous construction!
Walk and walk.......
Time to feed...

Back to host home.  Betty prepared the wonderful dinner with family. During this week long Jewish Sukkot holiday, it's the tradition for families to set up a Sukka, a hut outlook to have meal inside.
