Tel Aviv - Yaffo
Tel Aviv is Israel as the Zionists intended it to be. The Jewish state. Despite being the largest city in Israel, Tel Aviv has a relaxed Mediterranean beach atmosphere. In the Old City of Jerusalem the Christians fight the Muslims and the Jews. In the West Bank the Palestinians fight the settlers. In the suburbs of Jerusalem, the Orthodox Jews fight the secular Jews. In Tel Aviv most people manage to get through their day fighting nothing worse than extremely bad traffic. What is unique about Tel Aviv is that it is both a beach town and the nation's cultural and business capital. The brightest, most creative, and hardest working people in Israel congregate in Tel Aviv as the brightest, most creative, and hardest working Americans congregate in New York City. The difference is that, for about 9 months out of the year, it is possible to enjoy a pleasant sunset walk on the Tel Aviv beach.
