    My first visit to Tel Aviv coincided with my first visit to Israel in the summer of 1970. A friend and I were living in Jerusalem for the summer but every Saturday night, as Shabbat drew to a close, we were lined up for the first sherutim to Tel Aviv and glorious Dizengoff Street. I guess every generation has its own "Dizengoff Street" but on Motzei Shabbat in the summer of 1970, the swirl of people and activity up and down that boulevard from the circle up to Hayarkon and then back again more than made up for the long ride home and the start of another week in Jerusalem. And kol hakavod to Diana Lerner still climbing three flights of stairs at ninety-one; the life of a bohemian didn't hurt her stamina one bit!

    from the article: Bohemian cafes, sexual freedom and lots of gossip. Has anything changed in Tel Aviv?
