On tracks

During my last visit to Israel Nina and I decided to go and check out the new "Old Station" complex that had just been opened in Jaffa. To anyone who doesn't know what it is, the area used to be a train station that was built in 1892 and ran from Jerusalem to Jaffa in only four hours, a land mark in those days. Since then, the train station was abandoned and was reopened a few months ago as a chic shopping and restaurants area, located in the beautifully restored old Templar building. I have to admit I was really impressed, aside from a slight sense of theme- park-ish atmosphere, I think it is a really cool shopping area with a good mix of shops, including one in which I found imported Orla Kiely clothes that I have never seen in Israel before
We took our lovely photographer Yana, and tried to restore a little bit of the old station atmosphere, without looking completely insane to the people doing their weekend shopping trip.
