We arrived in Tel Aviv about 1:30 pm and it simply IS home. Our first 3 nights are in the last place we stayed 2 years ago. Wonderful vacation apartments. They upgraded us to a room with a jacuzzi tub. We looked everywhere for the towels. Found 2 small hand towels and decided we could get by tonight. April is sitting in the bath and says, "we looked everywhere for the towels, where else could they be?" I said, "are they under the bed?" She said, "look right next to you!" Sure enough the towels were in a nice arrangement in the center of the bed....I had already moved the champagne, glasses and candy that was arranged with them....but I had left the towels right there! Thought we were going to die laughing at ourselves. Mind you, this happened AFTER I started typing this blog....but it's a great example of how the last 48 hours have gone!!!
After we got here, we walked out the back side of the place and headed to the beach, 1/2 block away. At the end of the street is our favorite Shuarma place. Asi Shuarma Yona-Hanavin 1. I sat down, sank my teeth into the pita filled pocket and said, "I am home!!!"
They just unwrapped this fresh Shuarma and will need t let it roast overnight.
Of course we walked about a mile on the beach and Jehovah welcomed us with His spectacular paintings in the sky!
We're located at the Allenby fountain. I could sit all evening and watch the water dance in the light. But we went next door and had a scoop of ice cream.
It really is home!!!
