I just wrote up an entry about Arad and for some reason it was erased. I dont know why. so this is will be short. Arad was the next stop for the first day. Arad is in the eastern basin of the Negev which is above Beersheba. Arad also had remains from a civilization that lived there. there was also a temple on the site which was built by the people there. This temple was much better perserved than the one at Beersheba. You were able to see the holy of holies, and the sacrifical altar. we had fun with the altar.
