Israel is a fascinating place. It’s a country battling with contrasts, where old and new are at odds with each other. The result of this is an intensity that I have not felt anywhere else.
three days in jerusalem felt suffocating. The intense heat of the dead sea and Masada also felt suffocating! Acre to the north was different, but the only thing that I can remember well is eating at uri buri. all tensions fade with a memorable meal and good company.
tel aviv is a world of it’s own. a city full of electric bicycles and scooters. endless sidewalk cafes and a beach scene that’s worth the journey.
