Tel Aviv

I bet you thought I'd never stop writing about Israel! This is the last post. As always, my motive for writing this blog is so that I can browse it and remember this stuff later.

Now about Tel Aviv ...

I heart Tel Aviv. My impression of the city is that its a smaller NYC with an incredible beach. You can find anything, anytime of day or night in Tel Aviv, including some of the best looking people I've ever seen. Its best seen on foot since much like NYC, traffic is outrageous and parking is minimal. Even though I would still choose to live in Jerusalem, I felt very comfortable in Tel Aviv and enjoyed walking the streets and beaches.

Whew, it was a lot of Israel to digest 9 days! From just the small glimpse I saw, it is a beautiful, fascinating country. I can't remember a vacation I have enjoyed more.

I miss Israel and my family already.

Shalom.

You have truly captured the essence of Tel Aviv with these pictures.

Modern, big, sprawling, oddly small for its size, full of absolutely everything you ever want, wrapped up in an Israeli package...,

but you wouldn't want to live there.

Correct Michael, its a great city but it has nothing on Jerusalem!

Israel draws us in, and Jerusalem has that same effect on Israelis. You'll be back...

You bet I will Michael. Already we are planning the next tour: Haifa and the north! With a slight detour to the WB settlement where my other cousin lives.

Planning another tour this soon after coming back sounds just about right.

You'll be an oleh in no time!
