Tel Aviv looked and felt different from Jerusalem. While Jerusalem felt very conservative, Tel Aviv looked very liberal.
We left Jerusalem at noon and we took the train. From the Tel Aviv station, we took the bus to get to our Abraham Hostel. We arrived at our hostel just in time. We actually arrived a few minutes before 2 pm. The staff manning the front desk were all out to lunch but there was a a middle aged man who gave us two bottles of Coca Cola on the house while we waited. He did apologize for the delay in checking us in. It didn't take long before we got our keys to our room. While our room in Jerusalem was so small, this time around, our room was huge, very huge. Needless to say, we were very pleased.
While we lucked out it was dry each and every day during our stay in Jerusalem, the rain caught up with us in Tel Aviv. It's been ages since I heard thunder and were they loud. We worried when the rain didn't stop for two full days.
The pictures posted here were taken during our first two days in between brief dry spells. It did rain like crazy.
