Here are some more photos from our last trip to Israel along with a few thoughts. These shots are primarily from the Dead Sea region.
P.S. You can see enlarged photos by clicking on them.
Qumran is one of those interesting places that you want to visit in December when the temperatures are tolerable, unlike in the summer when it is well over 100 degrees.
Masada is an isolated and desolate place. No wonder hundreds of Jewish zealots thought they could hold out against the Romans - who would want to camp out here in the desert for a couple of years?
Ladies: if you ever visit the Dead Sea DO NOT SHAVE YOUR LEGS BEFORE GOING INTO THE WATER. I guarantee you the salt tells you everywhere you have a scratch or nick in your skin.
The desert has a strange beauty of its own. I really enjoyed our afternoon among the Bedouins.
Soon I'll posts a few shots from our experience in Jerusalem. Shalom.
