While in Israel

What would it be like if your house and hometown were 4 thousand years old?

This is Akko

Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, Arabs, Crusaders,  British, Israelis and others... they have all destroyed and built a little of this old place. They all wanted it for its strategic location in the Mediterranean, as a way into the Middle East. Above is one of its many gates.

It is so strong and thick, that it was impossible to conquer for many, such as Napoleon. 

Nowadays, daily life in Akko looks like this:

We sure got some of this...

Entrance to the Mosque.

We also got to try what is claimed to be the best humus in Israel!... and Adiel tried pickles (apparently she liked).

Until soon,
