The Old City of Jaffa









































































































































Well, you did ask for photos from my mini-vacation, here they are :)
This is an ancient port city right on the Mediterranean. It's a GORGEOUS place, walking down the hill is so relaxing and the views are amazing... And you get these views from everywhere!
According to our tour guide Jaffa was built in 7500 BCE, and was conquered by pretty much everyone from King David to the Ottoman Empire and Napoleon I of France throughout time.
Now the land is apart of Israel and is connected to the city of Tel Aviv. 
Jaffa is also home to the Jaffa Flea Market, where you can find literally anything (my mom and I found a Gucci wallet from the 90's in very good shape and ancient coins from the Ottoman period)

If any of you all ever come to the Middle East, don't skip a trip to Jaffa!!

  28. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.
    http://www.manorwestsf.com

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
