On Saturday we met Eileen’s friend Civil at the marina in Tel Aviv. Civil is a nurse who worked with Eileen. She is of German origin and settled in Israel after marrying and Israeli. Sound familiar?
Israeli meals, especially breakfast/lunch, are huge. They come with Israeli salad, breads, etc.. Of course, this brunch also came with champagne.
I was very surprised at how crowded the marina/boardwalk was. Civil explained that because most Israeli’s live in apartments, on Saturday, which is their only day off, people like to be outside. With the weather so exceptionally beautiful, the marina is a natural drawing place. Lots of families with lots of kids. The street people of course catered to the kids.
