Shabbat in Tel Aviv

The rain held off in the morning and early afternoon. I saw a homeless man sleeping on the street outside of the shwarma place on Allenby. He had a mattress and three pillows. I also saw a guy dressed in a gold cape and another dressed as robin hood.

We saw exercise equipment on the beach. Between that and all the parks, Tel Aviv is impressive. We made it back to the hotel before the hard rain and brutal winds hit. Everyday we've been in the room, the cleaning people knick the door. We scream, "No!" and they come in anyway.

We walked around tonight in search of dinner. We knew places would be closed for Shabbat. But the combination of Shabbat and the weather made. Tel Aviv a virtual ghost town.
