A new way to get to the beach

Grab a bathing suit and a towel, step into one of these globes, and zip down the mountain to the Bat Galim promenade, with its bizarre array of beachfront houses that range from pre-state Israeli stucco and Brutalist exposed concrete to refurbished Arab mansions.

Hadar: Splendor that Was

A recent weekend at a hotel in a newly restored Bauhaus building in Haifa's Hadar neighborhood opened my eyes to a part of the city I had never seen before.

    Oh, yes, Technion. We grew up under the shadow of it. The best - to Technion.

    Yes, tends to fall under the radar in the tourist department, indeed. Lived here more than 20 years, since my birth. Avi

      As a child people compared the beauty of Haifa to Naples [Napoli]. After being to Napoli - Haifa is nicer I think.

    My dad was in a refugee camp at the foot of Mt. Carmel in 44-45. From Poland via Siberia and Kazakstan. This would be near Haifa, yes?

    The Bahai detail is very interesting history today besides all the past it experienced. YOu have done a fine job of taking pictures and comments are very helpful.
