More photos here, these from a stroll we took around the souk in Tel Aviv last weekend. While it paled in comparison to the Fez medina, it was nonetheless vibrant, fascinating, and enjoyable.

Just up the street was a long pedestrian strip blocked off for a street fair, with vendors selling everything from beautiful jewelry to intricately decorated hamsas to strange little sculptural models and funky paintings. When you throw in a few stops for more nonfat chocolate gelato, a big lunch salad, and iced coffee, can you say anything other than: bliss?
