Snippets of the many reasons I think that Tel Aviv is such a great place to live in. Sometimes Tel Aviv is easy to love (beach, great weather all year long, street cafes all around - what's not to like?), sometimes it's more challenging, but at the end - my hometown of 5+ years is really great, and it deserves much better tribute than my humble blog :)
