Traveling Israel into the depths of the deserts dead sea where we float ontop of the water and the salt and mud combine on your skin and purify your body and soul is enough to realize how special this land truly is. Only than do I realize the desert, sun and sea leaves me dizzy and faint. Having to stumble up the 30 or so steep stairs, blinking my eyes to focus my now blurry vision just in enough time to find a concession stand wherw I had just enough money to afford a cold refreshing Sprite. Totally swept away from reality when my sister comes walking out fron her massage as we are late for our ride to our next destination; The top of Masada. Looking through the temple’s window view, carved out of stone, far below the sea level lies the Dead Sea.
