Do We Own Them Or Do They Own Us?
I've always suspected that cats are actually the true masters of the place and that we are quite mistaken when we think we own them... Tel Aviv offers plenty of evidence that it is rather the cats who rule us -- they are omnipresent! The specimen pictured here guards the entrance of an apartment block in Pinsker Street and is respectfully greeted by everybody walking by.
Better Homes and Gardens in Neve Tzedek
Okay, so it is not a "true" burnt orange, it is only the color of burnt orange, or would you prefer the color Sienna....but anyway this home just stands out from its neighbors, both in the architecture and also in its upkeep. It is still being lived in and obviously the people who live there love the old building, it is just a pleasure to see.
But as you can also see there is a wider range of architecture here in Neve Tzedik, from the small to the large and the important to the trivial. Whatever you like it is worth taking a walk around this wonderful area. I do hope that Tel-Aviv manages to preserve and do better on the upkeep here.
Keep on Kosher
“KOSHER” comes from ´Kasher´ and means “fit” or “proper”. It is applied to the food that Jews are allowed to eat. According to the Bible only animals that are ruminant are considered kosher. These animals are killed according to the traditional rabbinical ritual that removes any trace of blood. Milk and milk products cannot be eaten with meat, and shellfish is avoided.
During the Passover Festival, only is possible to eat unleavened bread.
you do need a sweater!
Some people say warm clothes are not needed - but if you for example plan to travel by bus or spend time inside a building bring a sweater or something like that - a lot of people here go crazy with the air condition and you might catch a cold...
