It’s about noon here and we’ve had such a relaxing day. Some people in the group had massages, mud wraps or mud facials at the hotel spa, some went to the pool and others went to the Dead Sea.
I went to the Dead Sea and realized it is the perfect body of water for me. There are no creatures! I loved it. I could swim, well float, without being freaked out the whole time I was in the water. It was also incredibly relaxing. It feels sort of weird floating there. It’s really hard to put your legs down to stand. The water also makes your skin feel amazing and silky. I exfoliated with the salty sand and now my skin feels great.
This afternoon we are going to Massada, a fortress built by Herod on the eastern edge of the Judean desert. We will take a cable car and have a great view. We’re also having dinner with in a Bedouin village. The Bedouins are a group of nomadic people. To be honest, I’m a little nervous about this dinner. This is the first time I’ve been freaked out about food here. I just have no idea what to expect. What do nomads eat?
We’ll end our day with a nice, relaxing camel ride. By nice and relaxing I mean anxiety provoking and scary.
