We only managed to take in one pavilion in the first week of Folklorama, but we discovered why the Israeli pavilion is so popular; it's good. The food was tasty (though a bit overpriced in typical Folklorama tradition), and the entertainment was seamless, with energetic dancing, good singing, and a decent orchestra (yes, not just a live band, but an orchestra) accompanying it.

The only downside is that the place was packed. By the time we got our food, the only place left to sit was some uncomfortable metal bleachers at the back of the auditorium. We perched there long enough to finish our meals, then stood through the rest of the show. In the end, it worked out better that way anyway because it gave us a better view for pictures.

Compared to the costumes in many of the other pavilions, the Israeli ones were elegantly simple.
All the dancers, all lined up.

The pictures are a bit noisy because I had to shoot at a pretty high ISO in order to capture the action shots in the comparatively dim lighting.
Ta daaa!

Is it just my dirty mind at play, or is the girl in the background looking rather salaciously at her dance partner?

I love the lighting in this shot.
