Today we went to Jaffa. Jaffa is the southern and oldest city of Israel and there are about 46.000 people. We have seen a lot today and there is a lot to talk about but I’m going to pick three symbols that are the essence of Israel and the people in it. First we saw the ‘Suspended orange tree’. It’s a tree in a clay construction and the artist of the art work is Ran Morin. It symbolizes the victory of planting trees in a place where it’s not that simple. Ran chose an
orange tree because it’s the symbol of Jaffa. The second is a bridge where all
zodiac signs are depicted on. The guide told us to put our hand on our zodiac sign, close our eyes, look at the sea and make a wish. Only then our wish would come true. At last we have seen ‘the gate of faith’ it is a very important gate which is on the top of the Peak park, in Jeruzalem there is another gate which is called the gate of Jaffa. It was really fun and I will never forget the trip to Jaffa!
