    Different writing

    Due to the fact that Arabic and Hebrew have different letters it happens that the translation to English might vary. Don't get confused if you read some name once in this way and just a few minutes later you see the name written in a different way. It confuses at first, but you will get used to this fact, once you keep this in your mind.

    While strolling in the alleys of the old city (and by the way in many arab cities or villages) you'll most likely see many times the Local Parliament" as i call it.
    Normally the oler Man although many times you'll see young ones as well, enjoying Card games or backgammon or Domino.
    This game time is a time to meet, to discuss the latest events...to gossip and to pass time..

    It was goooood :-)

    Black coffee is very popular in the middle east... and in many places its mixed with a spice named "hal" .
    Its not as "clan" as espresso or maybe other kinds of coffee but its strong and gooooood.

    We have set in a local cafe' in akko, a local Arab cafe in the market... not as fancy as the Cafe's we're normally going to but a simple local one, Arabic music in th ebackground and everything goes slow....as if there's all the time in the world....

    I definitely recommend that just as i always recommend to enjoy every local food / drinks and not search for the regular stuff you're drinking / eating at home.

    Getting wet

    The local kids have this scary practice of jumping into the sea from the city wall. The wall is more than 6 metres high and the water is full with rocks, but I guess they know exactly where and how to jump. So, if you have lunc on one of the restaurants in the Pisan harbour you might see them jump.
