Tel Aviv has been voted one of the world’s best places to visit. Here are some examples of why. The contrasts are stunning and action in the city never stops.
Time to get up and begin the stroll to Shuk Ha’Carmel along the empty tiyelet with Jaffa in the background before it gets too hot and before those who went to bed at 3:00 am clog the tiyelet when they return for another spell on the beach:
Past the memorial plaque to Abie Nathan – you can press a button and hear the famous sign off message from his boat, the Voice of Peace.
Perhaps stop for a fresh glass of orange juice:
Spare a thought for those killed by British terrorists at Mike’s place:
Go past a demonstration by Sudanese opposite the American Embassy …
View a new building that seems to have been influenced by Feng Shui while nearby a plaque shows the architects’’ pride in one of Tel Aviv’s first buildings, built in long ago 1922!
Then wander through Shuk Ha Carmel. You can buy just about anything that you might like there.
Did you forget your sunglasses?
Perhaps you need to add a little spice to your life?
Or home-made Druze pickles are more to your taste?
Then it’s round the corner to the Kerem Ha’Taimani – the Yemenite Quarter:
There’s a small synagogue on a nearby street:
An interesting mailbox and a freshly painted house:
But it’s time to head back for lunch at a restaurant overlooking the beach:
After a siesta, head to the Tel Aviv Harbor along the sea front at sunset for a meal, watching kids playing and climbing the statues:
Perhaps your preference is to get in a spot of Yoga or sun worship along the way:
Then meet up with a few members of the global CiFWatch conspiracy at the harbor for a meal of fresh fish caught that day:
And if you are not too tired – take in a movie at the beach:
That’s enough for one day – tomorrow it’s your chance to visit the flea market in Jaffa and other attractions.
(A commenter asked what these “Postcards from Israel” have to do with CiF Watch’s mission. CiF Watch exists to expose the distortions, errors and outright lies told by the Guardian in its obsessive coverage of Israel. These snapshots attempt to show some of the real Israel – not the dark, mythical, and imaginary place continually conjured by Guardian reporters and commentators. – AKUS)
