Tel Aviv - Israel

I hate not beeing able to put the stamps here!! Why?? I hope this isn't a permanent situation. I've put this stamp in a picasa album but the upload to this post was slow because the album is too full. The picasa albuns tend to get slow when their capacity is close to 600 pictures. If i've to do this from now on, it will take ages to create a new post and i'm not that patient.

I wasn't expecting this card from Israel. It was a surprise from Luís and his son. His son went to Israel and he asked him to send cards to some of his postcrosser friends!! I was one of the lucky friends.
Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 and developed as a metropolitan city under the British Mandate in Palestine. The White City was constructed from the early 1930s until the 1950s, based on the urban plan by Sir Patrick Geddes, reflecting modern organic planning principles. The buildings were designed by architects who were trained in Europe where they practised their profession before immigrating. They created an outstanding architectural ensemble of the Modern Movement in a new cultural context. - in:
