Red poppies are a sign of spring. The burst out all over the country. In the city, they can be seen in hidden little patches where Israelis have not gotten to them. For many years spring flowers were cut to almost extinction, today there is more awareness to keep them as they are. When fresh these flowers are delicate and seem to float like red dots / © 2010

One sign of Israel's economic growth is the city's skyline literally rising from year to year. Tel Aviv commercial and residential real estate values have been rising steadily over the years. With little open space in the city center, the only place to go is up. Old buildings are demolished to make space for taller new buildings. Tel Aviv has a few signature buildings like the Azrieli center (3 buildings pictured below). Many of the new buildings are designed in traditional modern styles. Glass, aluminum and some stone is used in high rise buildings. The use of new materials in high rise office buildings is a skill Tel Aviv architects are known for. The graph in the bottom is Tel Aviv stock exchange 15 Real Estate index (NADLAN15). Notice the rise, fall and again rise of the index the last five years.

Tel Aviv Real Estate 15 Index. The last five years the index has risen, fell and is rising again since mid-2008. The real estate companies have not enjoyed the stability of the actual market in Tel Aviv.

Night time in Tel Aviv quiets down the streets and calms the rush in people. Restaurants and pubs in Tel Aviv and the surrounding towns offer refuge until the early morning hours. Neighborhoods and the beach hotel strip go dark, blue TV glow lighting buildings.

Credit card advertisement, the TV spot spoofed a couple where the husband asks the wife to hold her delivery until they save a bit more money. MORE, the credit card gives you money so you do not have to delay events in life. A fully grown boy is still inside the mother.
