The Dead Sea

Sunday after the Chag, the day before we left to return to America, we spent the day at the Dead Sea.

Don’t believe the nonsense people tell you that it’s harder to get sun burned at the Dead Sea because of the altitude or whatnot. They are selling you a fish story, though there aren’t live ones here.

With temperatures in the high 90’s it didn’t take more than a few minutes to start feeling the pain of a burn. Luckily I didn’t stay in the sun too long and survived my stay.

Memo to Self:

Self, bring the suntan lotion next time.
