On The Road – Israel – Jaffa

#Travel #Israel #Jaffa

Walking through the old city of Jaffa, lots of renovation and construction going on. Most of the shops are galleries.

Jaffa is the southern, oldest part of Tel Aviv (since 1950), an ancient port city of Israel.

This construction site will be a new W Hotel, amazing to see the old buildings along side of the new.

Slow Food Explores Regional Food Traditions

Over the centuries, Thanksgiving has become a special day to share a home-cooked meal with loved ones and an offering of thanks for our blessings. In many ways, Thanksgiving is the quintessential “Slow Food” holiday. And yet, as many of us know, Thanksgiving has a complicated and controversial past.
