    The author should look up the word misanthropic before labeling Mark Twain as such...as either the author is ignorant of the definition or the man. As someone heavily invested in American literature, it is laughable to have heard Twain referred to as misanthropic. Besides a few years of depression after the death of his daughter, Twain is the antithesis of misanthropic. And I'm sure he can be forgiven the depression. Just a ridiculous statement. And as a resident of Tel Aviv for almost 6 years, I found no problems with the descriptions set out on the part of Lonely Planet in this article. Maybe the author should step into the Tel Aviv streets on any weekday at about midnight to 3am...you will find it is hard to distinguish between a Tuesday and Friday. In fact, what Tel Avivi isn't proud of this fact??
