Same experience, two extremes

June 30, 2012

Last Thursday was an interesting day. It started in Jerusalem and ended in Tel Aviv, Israel’s two largest cities. They both make me feel like a tourist most of the time.

The day started with a random encounter of the Muchtar of the Assyrians in Israel (google it)- a tailor and a lovely person who was more than willing to talk and share. Then, a meeting with the vice chairman of the Waqf in Jerusalem (google it), also a lovely man who was keen on talking about the conflict and his eagerness for tranquility. Then, some Humus, some views, some more people- the usual for the holy city.

Tel Aviv had its “White Night” that same day- a bunch of events and performances that took place all around the city. Somehow (and only god knows how) they got Nouvelle Vague (youtube them) to play in front of a crowd of no more than a 1000 people in a little square in Tel Aviv. They were amazing (and I had no clue they’re all former models and such- good surprise!).
