tel aviv , tel aviv
an old walkway, it's nice there at tel aviv but for me it has no comparison to ceasaria just due to the fact that ceararia is much more peaceful and relaxing for me, the first few times I tried to go to the beach in tel aviv I ended up at these places that you have to pay and I ended up driving from place to place just trying to find a place to park where I didn't have to pay to go to the beach, after that I started going to ceasaria rather than tel aviv..

Old Yafo (Yaffo, Jaffa or any other spelling) can be a delightful surprise as you wander the small winding streets and pass "corners", around each you find something new and often unexpected. The first photo shows a door made of sculpted metal. The second shows a tree planter suspended above the street. The third photo shows the ruins of the Egyptian town of Yaffo. Even though Egypt is adjacent to Israel, I had not been aware that they had a settlement here in Yaffo. The fourth photo shows the mailbox for the Vatican embassy, yes they do not have their embassy in the usual large city where all the other embassies are located, but in a side street of old Yaffo. The last photo shows a window in an abandoned club or home (not sure which) done in tinted glass, wood and iron... In other words it is worth taking time just to explore.
Israel is a nation of immigrants from all around the world that gathered from their corners only in the last 60 years or so.
We don't REALLY have local foods, only foods we adopted as local and made some changes (we make the best foods in the world!)
First, there are the oriental dishes - the Falafel (fried chick-pea balls, a delight, veggie), the Shawarma (Doener Kebap in Germany, basically lamb-meat), Hummus (chick-pea spread), Tehina (spread made of sesamy), Malawah (some sort of flat leaf-dough, with tomato sauce), Pita (round bread with a space in the middle, where you can put shawarma, falafel, tehina, hummus or any other thing. my fave is Nutella) and many other things.
then, there is the 'jewish' (east european jews) cuisine - Gefilte Fish (gefuellte Fisch, ground carp fish with carrot), Zimmes (some kind of minature carrot dish) and other foods...
of course you can get any kind of food in Tel-Aviv, starting from Italian, thru chinese, and to the most bizzare - Indonesian and East asian fusion.
Just eat away!
Maccabi Tel-Aviv Football Club
Maccabi Tel-Aviv is one of three major football clubs in the country that has competed on some of the higher levels (UEFA Champions League). The club hosts its home matches at Bloomfield Stadium in Jaffa, next to Tel-Aviv. The games are quite exciting and the fans provide a great atmosphere. Tickets are very reasonably priced in comparison to Europe and don't forget to bring money for sunflower seeds because nobody in Israel watches a football match without sunflower seeds. Bloomfield Stadium has generally great sightlines so no equipment is needed though it is best to be dressed in yellow in support of Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
