last thursday we took a family day and went to jerusalem. we are tel aviv-ians by heart and dont know jerusalem too well even though we live half an hour from each city.
both cities are worlds apart from each other.
we began with a visit to the science museum. the girls loved it with lots of buttons to press and levers to pull. its funny how us grown-ups cant resist those red buttons as well.
after an enjoyable morning, we went to mahaneh yehuda market - another first for us. it was crowded with people shopping for the weekend. we found an amazing little shop full of wonderful cheeses. and like the little red buttons, we couldnt resist. we made a note to return to this gem of a shop.
a major difference between tel aviv and jerusalem is the architecture. all the buildings in jerusalem are faced with jerusalem stone. the facades have such a different feel to them.
after a wonderful day out, we have decided to make 'family day' a new tradition for us. every couple of months we will take a day off work and school just for us.
and with a connection to tel aviv architecture.. a few weeks ago i was asked to create an illustration for a booklet for large library in tel aviv.
