Shalom / Salaam travelers!
We arrived yesterday and will be traveling with an organization Wendy is involved in -- Hands of Peace () on a dual narrative trip led by Mejdi Tours (mejditours.com). That said, this is not the official Hands of Peace commentary on the trip-- these are Wendy's and Emily's personal thoughts.
-- kids are the same everywhere! We wandered a bit longer and then it was time... to eat! Based on several recommendations, we ate at Manta Ray Restaurant right on the beach and our first treat was a gorgeous sunset.
As good as Santorini!
And while we're on meals, they say Israeli breakfasts are something to behold but this jaded "Breakfast buffets Around the world" traveler was in a "prove it to me" mode. Well, I'm a believer. There were tables extending the length of a football field containing cheeses, smoked fish (several kinds), salads, blintzes, breads, pastries, cereals, shaksouka (a spicey Israeli egg/ tomato sauce dish), eggs, pancakes, waffles, fruit, Halvah, vegetables, and much much more. There was a coffee bar (our guide made clear that Israeli coffee surpasses Starbucks-- no contest) and even the opportunity to squeeze your own orange juice.
In the Jaffa section of Tel Aviv.
