Tel Aviv


We are getting acclimated to our ‘home’ in Tel Aviv – getting to know the neighborhood, including the laundry, drug store, grocery and of course, Paul, who sells the newspapers. Another group of 8 joined CAARI last night and now we are 33! Great group!

These are some of pictures of one CAARI speakers – who talked about the rehabilitating the Yarkon River – interesting project. We had a short bus tour of the area and some sites in Tel Aviv – in between the rain drops – yes, we are having some rain.

Today we had a morning orientation and learned about our community service assignments. Devora, from Tel Aviv Municipality welcomed us and told us that the students were looking forward to seeing us. That brought smiles to our faces.

In the afternoon we had a most interesting tour of the Shiff House and learned about banking and the history of Tel Aviv. Most unusual museum – and lots of interesting multimedia visuals.

Stay tuned…for tomorrow’s blog.
