Important Facts About The Dead Sea:

  • Dead
  • 1200 Feet below sea level
  • Hot as Hell! (45C=113F)

Anyhow, we had a lovely time at the Dead Sea, the Lowest Point on Earth
We visited the fortress of Masada, where Jewish rebels fought the Roman army in 66 CE.
then some of us took advantage of the nearby En Gedi spa for a delicious mud then sulphur bath...
