Haifa is all hills. If a friend lives two streets away, it is not a fun jaunt or stroll to their house. It may be a mountain climbing adventure! I promise you, if you live in Haifa and walk around, there is no need for Kanye's workout plan. Jogging? More like a feigned attempted motion forward. Oh...and throw some stair workouts in there. Okay, maybe I had fun with the stairs, but...when I decided to walk from Ben Gurion up the mountain, it was no joke, especially with the heat. I have never perspired so much in my life. [Partial evidence to the left.]
Here is a link to a collection of photos I took of the stairs and hills in Haifa. I frequented the stairs regularly despite having a car. Sometimes, it is just better to experience the world on foot...or in a really cool stepped metro! [Interesting fact, Haifa has one of the shortest metros, called the Carmelit, and it climbs and descends Mount Carmel. Photos of the Carmelit are included in the link as it includes, yes, stairs!]
I am like a breeze -- you can find me...
