Tel Aviv :

The City of Tel Aviv was founded in 1909, with Jaffa joining the municipality in 1949. The White City was constructed based on an urban plan by Sir Patrick Geddes. Tel Aviv is the country’s business center, as well as its center for cultur, art, music, dance, theater, fashion and cuisine.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared Tel Aviv a World Heritage Site for its treasure of Bauhaus architecture. Tel Aviv’s so-called White City is home to more buildings in the Bauhaus or Modern Movement style than anywhere in the world.

Wow! I was really amazed by Doha...I'd like to check out a lot of the Gulf states like Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Dubai, and Kuwait one day. This may seem like a dumb question perhaps, but how safe are Americans in those Gulf states right now? That would be my only hesitation, besides the oppressive heat of course.

Thanks for posting!

Let me put it this way: Qatar has a community of over 2,000 Americans, and there has not been a single attack against any racial group or nationality. There are no extremists here (as in extreme enough to turn to terrorism), and you are perfectly safe if you visit. You have absolutley notihng to worry about. The city is full of expats - Germans, British, Norweigens, French - nobody has any problems. The locals are generally pretty friendly to foreigners.

As for the heat, you can avoid it if you visit in March/April - The temperature is still in the low 30s (C) in those months, and it is great because its hot enough to swim and have a lot of fun but not too hot. Its 40C today  Sad.

Thanks! It is a very nice city, I wouldn't call it beautiful, but an excellent place to live. I've been here for 10 years and when I first came to the city, there was nothing, and I mean nothing. the city really developed under Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa, and hes done a great job at developing Qatar's economy. I definatley recommend a visit.

I'm Palestinian and I still haven't gotten the chance to see Palestine or Israel - we were supposed to go back in 2000 but then the intifada started... the cities I want to see the most are Nablus, Jerusalem, Jaffa & Acre. As for the heat and humidity, trust me, nothing beats the humidity and heat of Qatar and the other countries of the Persian Gulf.

Venice, Italy - a few photos I took a while ago:




It's a pretty nice place to live in, if a bit annoying at times (billions of tourists in the summer, the heat, the fact that you have to schlep your luggage to the nearest boat stop when you travel....you name it). I am in the process of moving to Trieste with my family - nice place, but I fear I will miss Venice - I DID grow up here after all.
