Just back from Saigon my next flight has been to Tel Aviv again. The good thing was that I already got used to heat and the nice thing was, in Israel it was a dry heat without this humidity from Vietnam. From Tel Aviv it has been just a 2 hour drive south to the Negev Desert and there you can visit the ancient city of Shifta. I don’t have any idea what people wanted to do there but it is great to see this city with 2 Christian churches, a Mosque and a Synagogue within close proximity. See, this also works.
Unbelievable…no rain. I think this was the first time it wasn’t raining when I arrived in Tel Aviv. Probably Israel started to like my visits.
But to be honest…Tel Aviv is not one of my favorite places in Israel, but still I enjoy beeing on the 17th Floor at the Hilton…great unfiltered Goldstar, wonderful wines and a view that can’t be beaten in Tel Aviv.
This time I had the chance for a short visit of Haifa…it was realy a short visit, but since I’ve never been there, it was worth the trip. Next time I will try to spent more time there than just 3 hours.
The German Colony in Haifa…an interesting place for a visit…and the good thing is, a lot of restaurants around this area.
Still a very special place around Tel Aviv is the old city of Jaffa. Again it was worth a visit…and for me they serve the best humus in Israel at the House of Humus at the central place in the old town. This is the place where I would go out for dinner everytime I might have the chance. Nothing special, no stars…but for me the best humus.
Maybe you already realized that I do like, as I call it, „Wall Art“. This wonderful painting I found on a wall at the beach of Tel Aviv. Isn’t she beautiful? Yes, she is.
Dieses Mal fällt mir der Abschied nicht schwer. Gefühlte 24 Stunden Dauerregen. Dafür gibt es noch ein paar Bilder mit Sonne. Die Wahrheit ist nicht immer schön.
Na geht doch. Heute waren wir kurz in Jaffa und haben uns dort umgeschaut. Es ist zwar nur 10 Minuten südlich von Tel Aviv, aber eine andere Welt. Hier ist alles ruhiger und beschaulicher.
Langsam komme ich mir von Tel Aviv verarscht vor. Jedes mal wenn ich hier bin regnet es. Hoffen wir mal, dass es die nächsten Tage besser wird.
