We had breakfast at the usual spot across the street at #77. We went back to Bahji for the third time. I picked a lime. We were there until 2:30 p.m. Then we took the giant bus back to Haifa and walked about, but almost everything was closed because Shabbat started. It lasts until Sunday or tomorrow night, depending on who owns the shop. We went to a frozen yogurt place: half tart, half cappuccino with chocolate chips. Delish.
Saturday June 26, 2010
Since today was Shabbat, we had a free day. We ate breakfast, then we walked down the first half of the terraces then walked down Hatzionut, I believe, to Bengurian Ave. We walked slowly, stopping by the Haifa tourism booth. Then we ate at a place called Fattoush. It was superb. We got a kids meal,.It came with kabob, fries, salad, and Pepsi. We got magnificent ice cream in vanilla, vanilla chip, chocolate, and pineapple.
We eventually made our way up and recouped with some "cinnamon magic" tea; I added a cube of sugar, which made it excellent. For dinner, we ate at one of the places I ate falafels, but this time we got a huge salady selection, plus two free Cokes and a water. It seems as though all we do is eat, but I swear enough time passed between each meal.
It was nice to just be able to have a relaxing, slow day. We always hustle and bustle about, so that was cool. Plus, we've been here for six days so there isn't much more sightseeing to do around here, but I guess I can blame it all on Shabbat with everything being closed!
