Sail with Life
Once upon a time a group of Jews decided they were fed up of waiting for the ruling Turks to improve conditions in the ancient city of Yaffo,
and that the over-population, the bad hygiene, and the squalor were too much for them. They decided to move out.
They set about building the world’s first Hebrew city for two thousand years or so, Tel Aviv. This morning’s bike ride took us through the narrow alleyways of that first neighborhood, built on the outskirts of Yaffo.
These days it’s a trendy neigborhood right in the center of the business part of Tel Aviv.
We came back via the beach and the Yarkon River.
This is my all time favorite, a sign advertising boat hire on the Yarkon River.
‘Shootoo etzel Hayim, hahana’a kiflayim’ or in other words – ‘Sail with Hayim (a Hebrew name meaning life), twice the enjoyment’. In Hebrew it rhymes.
And that’s all I have to say right now about the passing of Arafat.
Afterthought: Thank you Mark.
