Backgammon "club" at the flea market

Jaffa Flea market is one of the most colorful places in Tel Aviv, full of authentic characters, patterns, smells, sounds and stories.
After I came back from Singapore, where I was fascinated by the chess players "club" in the middle of the Chinatown, I was looking for opportunity to sketch street games players here in Israel. This week I found them at the Jaffa . Small table and two chairs in the middle of the street, two players surrounded by the group of men - was really the best show in the city! I think that Olympic Games competitors need to learn the worrier's spirit from these backgammon players!

Suddenly we saw at the opposite site of the street group of men organizing something... What are they up to? They turned to Jerusalem direction and started to pray:

Of course, there is no sketching day without food - we couldn't resist to have some humus!

Small cup of black coffee and Nathan, very concentrated by sketching people around :)
 It was perfect sketching day!

  1. באמת יום שרבוט מושלם.. זה ה"מועדון" שש-בש ברחוב עולי ציון? כי ראיתי שכבר יש בשוק כמה מועדונים כאלה. אולי יעשו אליפות :)

    1. אני לא זוכרת את השם של הרחוב. אני מתה על המקומות האלה, אם אתה מכיר בעוד אזורים - ספר לי!
