We'll just pretend that I didn't have a gap between Israel posts, mmmm 'kay?
So Tuesday we went to Tel Aviv.
|I really liked the architecture.|
|That gazebo is still a functioning place of business.|
|I'm a sucker for hanging laundry pictures.|
|PLAYGROUND!! I'm so mature.|
I debated how much I should say about this next part of the day, but as it was one of the moments that stuck with me a lot, I thinks it's worth writing about.
Our next stop was Rabin Square. For those who don't know, this is where Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated. There is a memorial there for him which we were looking at.
We were instructed to look away, and we did. Any explanation I give for his actions will be inadequate, so instead I'll just leave this link to a news article about it here.
The bus came and got us, and we left a little earlier than planned. The trip coordinators made it clear that they were there should anyone want to talk.
That's the end of the scary part of the day.
We next went to visit an Israeli graffiti artist at his studio.
|This was the best picture I would get of the guy.|
|Me with my contribution.|
Jaffa was beautiful. Also, hot. I mean, everywhere was hot, but Tel Aviv and particularly Jaffa, were humid. Which made everything worse. The upshot here is that when we first got to Jaffa we were given time to go get ice cream. Ice cream makes everything better.
|We met up at this really big clock tower.|
|There was a wedding on that roof.|
That's it for Tel Aviv. Coming up- The desert! Part 5 Now Up
