Last night I slept on the sofa in the Tel Aviv apartment where my sister lives with her boyfriend and two other roommates. The interior of their apartment looks exactly like the set of That Seventies Show, but the apartment is in a great location so nobody complains.
The first night i was here we went out to a bar in Dizingoff with my cousin, his cousin (from the other side of the family), and my cousin's friends. Our waitress was a bitch, as many Tel Aviv waitresses often are.
The next day my sister and I walked to Shuk Hacarmel (open air market) where we bought veggies and other groceries. When we got to the meat section I nearly threw up from the smell, so I waited for my sister further down at the fish section (which didn't smell any better). As we walked home I noticed all of the great street art that gives this city it's edge-- I have attached a few photos.
The next day we took the bus to another market called shuk Hapishpeshim (Flea market) in Jaffa. I went into several antique shops (some looked more like junk shops) in search of
The last supper?
On the way from Jaffa to the Carmel market
some cool pictures to put up on the walls of my new apartment in LA. I found some nice stuff but it was too expensive and too heavy to take with me on the plane, so I left empty handed.
We walked Up from Jaffa to the Carmel market to get a Druze pita with labane and tabouleh salad in it. On our way home we saw more street art.
Since it was my last night in Tel Aviv with my sister we went out to dinner with her boyfriend and his Argentinian friend (her boyfriend is also Argentinian). We ate at a little restaurant called Olive. The food wasn't noteworthy but the waitress was really nice (for a change) and we got to sit outside and people watch so I was happy. Tel Aviviens (I know, I made that up) are incredibly fashionable.
After that we walked over to a coffee shop down the street to have cheesecake and coffee. I went to sleep satisfied and excited to begin my program with the Olive Tree Initiative.
