I hope you had a merry Christmas or are having a happy Chanuka.
I am just returning from four days in what seemed like another country.
Tel Aviv is SO different from Jerusalem!
For one thing, they have the Mediterranean.
Water, sand, marinas!
Enlarge the photo and you'll find surfers, even on December 24.
Together with Saturday's strong cold wind there was sunshine (enough to make Shadow Shot Sunday 2 shadows), and people were dancing!
Men and women together, dancing to music!
Definitely not what I have gotten used to in Jerusalem.
The Sabbath dancing circle is here, along the promenade, below hotel row.
I start to understand why Israelis call this fun-loving metropolis "Medinat Tel Aviv," meaning the State of Tel Aviv.
It's like a foreign country.
Like a bubble within the other, starker, reality of the rest of Israel.
