  1. I remember the awesome scent of the air inside Tel Aviv.... when I was a little kid and would accompany my mother on her shopping walks on Devon, we visited probably most of these businesses, although I only really remember Tel Aviv by name. They would always give me a little cookie or snack when we went in there, as my mom waited for her paper number to be called. Wow... I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
