Tel Aviv

November 8, 2009

Scott, Marshall, Heather and I spent our last day and night in Tel Aviv.  A big city on the Mediterranean, it’s apparently where all the young people from all over the country go.  The streets were filled with cafes and shops and wine bars.  The main avenues were packed with people going in and out of malls, buying ice cream, chatting.  We had a great afternoon walking around, running along the water, seeing the more modern side of Israel.

When we left for the airport at 3.15am to catch our 6am flights, the streets were still packed with revelers out and about at hip little places with thumping music.

We then hopped on our next, very long transatlantic flight.  I’ve never seen such security at an airport.  It was awesome, though, to spend so much time with my brother and his wife, to have a chance to talk about this really special trip that we had and to process all that we heard.
