Well here we are in the south of Israel,

We did decide to come south running close to Jordan in the Jordan Valley HWY 90.

It runs through the Palestinian Authority Region but seemed safe enough

as we only went through one check point and that was occupied by Israeli

military. We stopped at Qunram where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

We continued south toward Ein Gedi. Seeing the Dead Sea for the first time

we were suprised how blue it is. The terrain on the west side of the sea

very different. You will see that on the images. Tomorrow we will go to

Masada in the forenoon and bob around in that salty sea after.

Here's some pictures
