We left Jerusalem by train on a warm Wednesday afternoon and made our way to the business center of Israel, the beach city of Tel Aviv.
If Jerusalem is home to most of Israel’s history, Tel Aviv is home to most of the fun.There are loads of bars and restaurants, and much of the city is open during the Shabbat period. Jerusalem was a ghost town on Fri and Sat nights, but Tel Aviv never seems to stop.
People watching here is unlike anything else we’ve experienced in the middle east. I’ve seen both a rollerblading orthodox Jew and a heavy metal Muslim girl complete with head scarf, spiked leather wristbands, and Black Sabbath t-shirt.
We have a few more days here to explore the town and hit the beach.
