Hidden treasures in Jaffa

Jaffa is a city which is connected with Greek mythology and it’s mentioned several times in Bible as well. But the Old city of Jaffa is so alive even nowadays. At Flea market you can see people playing cards, or backgammon. The time is unchangeable. Among the city streets of old Jaffa is a hidden work of Morin’s known as the Floating Orange Tree. Morin sought to emphasize the increasing world of separation between man and nature, as “creatures that grow in containers.”   Actually, that’s my favorite, because it reminds me of the destiny of rootless people who travel from place to place.
