Did you know the history of Tel Aviv goes back 4000 years? This area has been conquered and reconquered countless times over the years - Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, King David and King Solomon, Greeks, Ottomans, Crusaders, and more!
You probably didn't know that here in Israel, people commonly refer to those of us living in the Tel Aviv as 'living in a bubble,’ - meaning that we live separately and differently from the rest of the country. There is a definitely a different atmosphere in Tel-Aviv than in the rest of Israel.
I was worked so hard this time that I had to get away for a live in the USA:)
Tel Aviv has been dubbed Israel's "cultural capital" thanks to its large and vibrant community of artists, poets, filmmakers, dancers and architects.

Breakfast:There are few things as wonderful as Israeli breakfast. Unlike the cheerios-and-milk American routine (or, even worse, the ubiquitous but tasteless nutrition bar), Israeli breakfasts are adventures in flavor, texture, and spice. Like the people themselves, Israelis’ breakfast foods are bold, with assertively tangy flavors, and comprise the freshest ingredients.
Think stacks of fresh pita to be dunked in hummus, labane (a thick yogurt-based cheese), fruity olive oil, and za’atar–the essential Israeli herb. All this accompanies fresh sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, as well as a spread of other cheeses and much more.
