1/29 – We left our Cozy Flat this morning after breakfast, and walked back to the Jerusalem Bus Terminal, where we caught the 10am express bus 405. An hour later, we were in Tel Aviv.
We are staying at the Peer Guest House for one night, to put us in position to catch a morning flight tomorrow. This is a lovely guest house with rooms in different buildings, and a breakfast room that is open all day and night offering coffee, tea, and a variety of fresh fruit, breads and pastries. Our room was on the top floor, up a spiral staircase meant for folks without backpacks!
What to do for our one afternoon in Tel Aviv? We were right down the street from the HaCarmel open market, so we started there. We ate lunch by strolling along, pointing to things that looked good to eat.
The egg roll shaped things had spicy meat inside, and the corn dog shaped things were filled with mushrooms. Yum!
No doubt that anything on this table will make a delicious dessert. I’ll have one with pistachios and honey, please. br />
And yes, I’d love a fruit smoothie, made to order!
My mom is a fan of Halvah. You can get it in huge wheels here, in any flavor you like.
Of course, there’s plenty of other stuff at the market too. What is that hot pink stuff?
Finished with lunch, we walked down to the beach. It had big pink hotels like Miami.
And old guys who feed pigeons.
It was just the kind of relaxing afternoon we needed. In the morning, it’s off to the airport to fly back to Istanbul.
