Welcome, to our site! After living for some time in Israel and then in the UK we've now moved to Germany. We'd like to share our experiences with you. We hope you have as much fun reading as we have writing.

And again we have much honoured guests! Emanuel’s parents have been waiting impatiently for their turn. Warmed up by our stories and those of my parents, they could hardly bear the exitement. :wink: But friday it was finally their turn. Early in the morning they got on the plane in Brussels and round about four we could finally share some hugs and kisses. If they could’ve they would’ve flown straight to our apartment…and just like my parents, Emanuels mum and dad conclude that the pictures don’t really show how nice our home actually is. :razz:

We have diner at NG, a steakhouse in Neve Tzedek we tried for the first time with mum and dad Wijckmans. It’s one of the better places in Tel Aviv to have good meat! And also the deserts are very much worth while… :mrgreen: After diner we go for a stroll on Rothschild boulevard. This is not a beach boulevard with shops and restaurants, but a boulevard in the center of the city. In the middle there’s a path for bikers and people on foot and there’s traffic on the sides. At strategically well chosen spots there are small kiosks where you can have a quick bite to eat, or something to drink. On the outer sides of the boulevard there are dozens of restaurants. Until this weekend there’s been an exibition of globes. Several artists have been given a globe with a diameter of maybe 1,5 meter and everybody did something with it. All globes are lighted from within, creating a nice ambiance. We walk around between them and after a last stop for a cup of coffee we head for home and our beds…

By now we can honestly say that Jaffa is our standard introduction to Israel. Today also we start there. First a stroll through the old center and after that some humus and falafel at our favorite spot. A frozen yoghurt (that’s frozen fruit and yoghurt mixed to a kind of icecream) is a nice end to this first day for mum and dad Habets. Well not really the end…for our diner we made a reservation at MantaRay… :grin:
