Overlooking the Dead Sea

We arrived at our hotel for the night at the southern end of the Dead Sea where we immediately changed back into our bathing suits and swam, really floated, in the Dead Sea. Because the water is 30% salt, unlike the ocean’s 3%, it feels like a thick coat of oil on your skin, and you will float right to the top. I stood in waist deep water and tried to “sit down.” Up came the feet out of the water and there I was floating like a big bread crumb in a pond. No need to worry out anything being in the water; nothing can live in it.

Tomorrow in Jerusalem.
