Tel Aviv!!

A full day in Tel Aviv = ...

The beautiful Mediterranean!

Yummy Yummy Yummy! Like a mix between a schwarma and a philly cheese steak complete with carmelized onions!!
Gorgeous park we happened upon in the middle of the city
Cute Israelis we played basketball with!

Mmmmm I LOVE Tel-Aviv! Being in the city was a fun little vacation from historic-filled Jerusalem. The beach was very much needed but seeing as we just came from winter - my bright pink, sun burnt back was inevitable...The markets were delightful and had delicious mint lemonade and skin-tight leggings (leopard print and nude colored included) found on all different sizes of women....NOT a pretty sight! 

Such a fun day trip! I hope we go many times throughout the semester!

P.S. Look who I found! 

The Bridgewaters were here as a part of a tour group from Provo. I did a double take when I saw Sister B. coming out of Shaban's shop in the Old City and ran over to give her a hug. They joined us for church on Saturday. Sister Julie B Beck (former R.S. General pres.) was with the group and when I found out they were coming to church, I kind of started to hyperventilate because this was my week to teach in Relief Society and I was teaching out of Daughters in my Kingdom - basically her book - but then they only stayed for sacrament meeting so major bullet dodged! Can you imagine though?!

We rode our bikes all over the coast (along that boardwalk) then we found this little bump/mound thing on one of the piers. we all rode of it millions of times and called it a 'tel'. i miss it so much. And I miss you! I get jealous, reaaaal jealous, when I read your blog
