The Israeli Cultural Rainbow

What was really cool was that we got trempim with almost every type of Israeli.
Every time we entered a car it was like entering a different world, each with it's own music and style. The first tremp we took (from outside Tverya to the Katzrin area) with religious girls, mitnachlot- cut T-shirts, Shoresh sandals, and they had Beit Habubot and Gidi Gov playing.
Then we drove with a weird artist man with striped velvet pants.
We drove with high-class Ethiopian guys who listened to American hip-hop and had about them a layed back hip-hoppish-dancer-player style who seemed like they were on their way to a dance party.
We drove with an "ars" with slightly spiked hair who didn't have music playing but his phone rang and his ringtone was middle-eastern (mizrachi) music.
We drove with a Bet She'an woman (Bet She'an is a whole culture in itself) who listened to Galgalatz and had a screamy annoying voice.
We drove from Mechola (the middle of the bik'ah) to the turnoff to JM (it's an hour drive) with a Bohemian hippyish cool couple (he with dreadlocks, she with messyish hair) who were on their way to the Arava to go hiking (their jeep was jampacked with backpacks and hiking equipment) and they listened to a CD with Nomi Shemer and Lehakot Tzva'iyot (army bands).
