We’re not only at the end of the year 5769, but also at the height of the cultural month in Tel Aviv. This month is a part of the city’s centennial celebrations, and as a part of these festivities the city of Brussels has given Tel Aviv a grand gift in the form of a flower carpet, now on display on Rabin Square.

I went to see it last night, and I must say that it was quite nice. Half a million flowers take up quite a lot of space, even when they’re tightly packed together.

The only thing I didn’t understand was the music played in the background. This is in fact something that I’ve thought of before during this year-long celebration. Of course they want to play music connected to Tel Aviv somehow, but it seems that any song that mentions the White City is kosher.

I can see why this, this and — for the flower carpet event especially — this would be a suitable soundtrack.

But who thought that it was a good idea to include this song?
