Tel Aviv/Yafa

The metropolitan center, the business and artistic center of Israel, home to the family of my friend who I'm visiting this trip. Tel Aviv was originally built as a beach town, typically by the British as they seem to like. Yafa, on the other hand, has been there for some time protruding from the shore in what is western Tel Aviv. It was the site of some considerable history- some say where Jonah went off to the whale, and the Greek myth I can't recall of the beast from the sea (started with an A- ah! no wonder it was difficult, Aspidoceleon, courtesy of Google) .
