Doors and stores


Many countries have really interesting doors and entry ways.  Israel is of course no exception.  It also has some interesting stores, especially in old Jaffa.

How about a ladder, a movie set light, an acupuncture chart, various clocks, and who knows what else.

A hoarder’s idea of a great shop.
I looked for this bakery for days and of course my kids stumbled upon it by accident. Most immigration from France over the last few years (16,000 last year alone). Israel allows more immigration than any other country and French Jews are leaving France because of serious anti-semitism there. More are expected this year. Many French bakeries, very yummy!
