Tel Aviv Carmel Market Street Scenes
Tel Aviv, Israel and the Palestinian Territories

During today's long wandering of the city I happened across a large market—Carmel Market—which is supposed to be the largest in Tel Aviv. Although mostly foodstuffs were for sale, there was also a large smattering of clothing, jewelry, charms, housewares and flowers to be found.

Traveler Tip: If you're new to a large city and don't have or want to lug around a guidebook map, simply step into one of the nicer hotels in the area and ask the concierge for a tourist map (pretending you're a guest, of course). "You know, I forgot to ask for a map earlier this morning. Do you happen have one?" …Never fails.

This might seem a bit stupid and nieve, but it seems strange that they have pik n mix in Tel Aviv! I think of it as some far off land that's totally different to England, but those pik n mix look just the same!
