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.

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.
