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.
