Israel Style

Today we walked around Tel Aviv and went to the Art Museum here and also the stores, grocery, and cafes.


What I really liked was seeing it up close and not from the back of a tour bus. 


After just a day or so, I started to feel like I was really experiencing life here. 


Crossing Menachem Begin Road, we ran into these fashion-conscious ladies. 


The colorful clothes and hair, the tall blue shoes, the ripped leggings of the women on the left definitely stood out.


Juxtaposed is the lady on the right in the black dress, short haircut, bag, and glasses. 


This pair was a standout!


In a way, I miss the Holy lifestyle of Jerusalem here in Tel Aviv, but at the same time, I like the cosmopolitan and modern life here too.


Anyway, I feel like I am learning a lot and enjoying experiencing culture and religion Israel-style.

The Cello And The Horse

Cello and Horse
So this was a funny picture I took today at Foggy Bottom. 



This guy in a shirt and tie is playing this awesome looking cello…



And sitting next to him is this other guy wearing a horse mask, rolling his head, and staring intently at the people passing by. 



Behind them is a farmers market and in front to the left is someone selling beautiful flowers. 



Overall, just another weird scene in the Nation’s capital.



Next up, the guy in the horse head plays the cello and everyone sings along and neighs. 😉
