At least he knows what he is
Took Israeli transit into Tel Aviv today and visited the cute neighbourhood of Old Jaffa. This is a port city that lies on the Mediterranean Sea. It is here that Andromeda of the Greek myths was rumoured to be chained to a rock by her king father in order to appease Poseidon. Andromeda's Rock lies near a natural pier and is now marked by an Israeli flag. We strolled along the beach and visited some gardens. Several people tried to ask us stuff in hebrew today. Flattered that they think we're locals. One woman asked me something about the bus and another seemed to be asking Niklas for directions. Another was trying to sell me something at the bus station. How cute. Speaking of Jerusalem Central Station, we were quite impressed with a bakery we came across there. They sold pastries by the pound. We filled a bag with a bunch of yummy savory pastries and the lady who worked there weighed it and charged us just 23 shekels for the whole bag. Quite the deal. They tasted great. Israelis can give the French patisseries a run for their money. Like Niklas said, we'd probably get fat living here.

Tomorrow: holocaust history
