This is the second time I've looked through your photo gallery! Amazing! This time I found a few pictures of places that I'm sure I've seen, and some that stirred memories of things I had almost forgotten.
We lived in Tivon for about 6 months (from August '95 to January '96) with our two girls (7 and 9 yrs. of age at the time). We lived on Habrochim Street in a very small 1 l/2 bedroom apartment. Our girls attended Narcasim School which was a very pleasant 5 min. walk away.
My husband and I were reading an article today from the National Post (Canadian news) and noticed a one page article about 1 family leaving Israel due to the excalating attacks on Israel and 2 families making aliyah. The first article was about a young woman and her baby, living in Tivon. The reporter described the town as 'a leafy suburb, south east of Haifa! We had to laugh, but really when we think about it, Tivon is very green and lush with so many different kinds of trees and flowers. I miss that about living in Tivon. It was a quiet place but also a very welcoming town. I was getting to know a lot of people, not just Israelis but people from all over the world. Sadly, we decided to return to Canada. My husband was born in Afula and lived part of his life in Tivon where his granparents lived.

There's one picture (image 4056) - it looks very similar to the house we used to walk past on one of our routes to town. It was a kind of backwoods kind of way of getting to town I think. There was one house towards the end of the road that stood out amongst all the rest because it was definitely newer and very well kept. Actually, I have a picture of it. I'll have to compare it to yours.
Thank you again for posting your wonderful pictures!
