Bearing Witness

Haifa

Haifa is built on Mt Carmel which does not make it very easy to walk around, as my carves can attest to.  Apart from this I did get the distinct feeling while I was there that Haifa did not like me. For starters it rained the whole day, meaning the Baha’i gardens where closed [however they looked amazing, from what I could see from the locked gates], the Haifa Art Gallery was also closed – for no apparent reason – and the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art only had one exhibition open to the public – with two of it’s three exhibition halls closed. However the  Ursula Malbin Sculpture Garden was cool.
