This morning we walked down the Tel Aviv streets to Shuk HaCarmel - The Carmel market. I've been looking forward to visiting the Israeli markets more than just about anything else on this trip. The smells, the colours, the flavours, the people, the noises, the culture...
And Oh. My. Goodness. What an adventure.
Spices of every type you can imagine.
Towers and stacks of breads of every shape and size, even though it's Passover.
Olives! (I've eaten so many I may just turn into an olive by the end of this.)
So many flavours of Turkish delight.
Pens and iphone cases and clothes and shoes and sunglasses and underwear and jewelery and lighters too.
Have you ever tasted dried pineapple? Dried kiwi fruit? Dried banana? Dried cherries? So much YUM!
Gorgeous looking fresh fruit and veg.
We bought the coffee flavoured halva.
Towers of sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeets.
Yep we found some organics too.
We filled our backpacks and we filled our camera memory cards.
We had such a wonderful market day. My heart and my head and my tummy are full.
I feel crazily, ridiculously, inspired and excited.
I hope you are traveling well my friends.
I'll show you the pics I took at the flea market soon.
We're heading to Jerusalem tomorrow early.
