Lovely shots. Great to see these old houses against modern life, like in #6. #15 is a beautiful view as if one is on top of the world. TFS

@napo and @MichelvA, thanks for the kind comments.
Just posted part 2, some photos taken in the ancient walled port city of Acco.
Lots more to come as they are processed and selected, so watch this space.

Somehow I've never toured Nazereth yet, although I know the area very well. I just never entered the city. So you exposed me to another part of the country I spent most of my life in.
Very nice set! Thanks for sharing!

I will never visit that country, but what a nice series of photos in your 4 threads.
Colorful, interesting, historical, ancient memory, scenery, all inside your photos.
Good work.

Thanks for the comments and feedback.
Nazareth is certainly worth a visit. Very much an Arab city, with the 4am calls to prayers from the Muezzins at the city's mosques a bit of a challenge on the first morning after arriving jet-lagged from Australia. All part and parcel of the rich experience.
