I don’t usually drive to Tel Aviv, mostly because I don’t know it well, but also because if you take into account the gas, the parking and the stress, it comes out cheaper to take public transportation.

Today was partly cloudy, so I got a pretty good shot.
I get the feeling a lot of my 365 project posts are going to include the phrase “there’s just something about…”
