My Trip to Israel, part 9

Thursday, day 9

Tel Aviv Day!
We went to Independence Hall, and watched a video about Theodore Herzel and his famous conference.
Then we went to Rabin Square, and learned what exactly went down when...he did.
Then we went to the old city of Yaffo and ate lunch overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, on which Tel Aviv is situated. After lunch, we took to the streets, and walked its famous flea markets.
We then drove to Kfar Chabad, where we saw 770, and the esrog orchards, and heard Rivkin, the head of the esrog empire.
At night, we had a motivational speaker explain to us how we cannot miss the gorillas in life, and how Attitude=100%. Part of what he showed us was a video about an Israeli who dreamed of making it big in Hollywood. When he did, he then realized that he didn't really want it...or something like that.
