Ya Habibi, Tel Aviv
February 6, 2015
It's hard to imagine Tel Aviv as nothing but a field of sand dunes and scrub, as it was a little more than a century ago when it was founded. The now bustling tech metropolis is juxtaposed with the ancient port of Jaffa in the same municipality, and both are hubs of architecture and busy neighborhoods. We spent a few days in Tel Aviv, visiting the market and learning about the city's history. We were only able to spend an hour or so in both Jaffa and close-by Caesarea, which stunned us with its Mediterranean sunset over rocky shores and Roman ruins. If you visit, definitely plan adequate time for these sights.
If you're wondering where the title of this post comes from, it's from this song.
