From the Dolphin Beach to Tel Aviv

We woke up early to our breakfast in our little yard. I could get used to be served breakfast in a lovely private space like this. We were anxious to get going since we had a plane to catch at 1:15.

We took a taxi to the Dolphin Beach and spent hours watching the dolphins swim and play. The possibility was there to swim with the dolphins but unfortunately the timing didn't work. But that being said it was fascinating watching the dolpins and they swam, jumped and played. But we had to go. We had a plane to catch.

Fortunately and unfortunately the plane went to Ben Gurion Airport. This meant it was a bigger plane but we had to get from Ben Gurion to Tel Aviv. After spending 2 hours on local buses we wondered why we had not renting a car for the day. Oh well, we will chalk it up to experience.

Yes! They're everywhere/\. But fortunately they are greatly outnumbered by fallafel places. The hebrew letters say "Mcdonalds", so you can figure out how each of the letters are pronounced.

In the evening ,on the recommendation of Gail and David, we saw a dance company performance of Tetrus. This is unlike anything we have ever seen before. As you walk in your height is measured to determine if can see when you put you head through a whole in an overhanding structure. Everyone is given a stool at the correct height. The audience then pops there heads through the holes on the stage. I know this sounds bizarre but this was the staging of the show. The dancers danced on the stage surrounding by the heads of the audience. The dancers sometimes danced over you, between the heads and sometimes focused on your eyes. The focus was boundaries and relationships. A very interesting, unique and creative piece.

After a walk along Diesengoff Street, a stop for some Gellato and then a glass a wine at a restaurant along the beach we called it a day.
