Sunset in Yaffa

Sunset over Yaffa, the ancient Arab village that has been swallowed up by Tel Aviv. At sunset on this day the place was crawling with brides to be, fully festooned in they gowns and make-up, hair, everything. I mean the whole thing is such a production, just for some fake pictures? It's not even really their wedding! Yaffa is still comprised primarily of an Arab Palestinian population living in what is quite possibly the most scenic part of Tel Aviv. In fact, there is a significant Arab presence all over Tel Aviv. I am continually surprised by just how diverse Israel actually is...
