The rest of the day yesterday was really enjoyable. The Shuk HaCarmel (Carmel Market) was packed with clothing, fruit, meat, spices, junk, cds, dvds, art and more. From there I took the bus to Bar Ilan University to meet Sandy, and the trip that was supposed to be 40 mins with a transfer took 1.5 hours. I'll get there earlier and meet with the students tomorrow, but yesterday I got there just in time to hop in the car and head to Herzliya for the Beatles cover group concert by a group called the "Magical Mystery Tour." It was a really enjoyable show, and the audience was a surprisingly mixed demographic. From there Sandy and I went to Tel Aviv to sit by the ocean and have a beer and then back home to crash at 3 am.
Today I'll head into Tel Aviv in the afternoon, and meet up with Galia and friends in the evening. More on that later.
Here are some pictures of yesterday:
