Purim - Israel's most Riotous Holiday - in pictures...

Purim, Israel’s most fun holiday, begins officially tomorrow night, but all over the country people are already partying.  Since I've got a particularly itchy finger at the moment, and can't seem to put my camera down, I'm blogging once more via images.  The photos below give you a glimpse into the world of young ‘Tel Avivis’ (as they’re affectionately known) and the costumes they’ve been donning today, for the first of many a party this long weekend.  I could have spent all day out on the streets, but in just an hour or two I saw an array of astonishing get-ups...and here are some of my favourites...

Happy Holidays!
