Not Hong Kong

This is NOT Hong Kong: a heavy fog advanced last week from the sea into Tel Aviv and covered the city. These low clouds surrounded the major Reading power station in Tel Aviv, and advanced to the sport arena in the middle and the city new towers in the front of this image.
Low clouds and fog are a super rare phenomena in Israel and especially in Tel Aviv, as the city resides on the Mediterranean sea.
Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 by a group of 66 jewish residents of Jaffa who envisaged a European style garden suburb, with wide streets and boulevards. A hundred years later, their vision has come alive.
The city of Tel Aviv is an open air museum exhibiting an impressive display of international style buildings and Bauhaus architecture.
Tel Aviv is the cultural and business hub of Israel and is an active city with lively entertainment, culture, art, fashion events, movie theaters, shopping malls, food festivals, a variety of cuisines and an attractive nightlife scene. As a result, Tel Aviv is sometimes called "The city that never stops" by tourists and locals alike.
The city high rise buildings form a beautiful skyline against the shore and the beautiful beaches are an ideal spot for vacationers and attract people from all around.
