The Dead Sea experience: we have floated!

On Thursday, we left Tel Aviv. We were a little bit sad, because we were almost feeling like home in the city. We took the mini bus to go to the Dead Sea.

We had a first stop in En Gedi national park. It’s precisely in the middle of a desert. It’s hot, sunny, with almost no trees. After walking during one hour, we discovered some springs and an amazing view on the Dead Sea and the lanscape around.

After a quick lunch, we moved to the Dead Sea Spa. Here are the steps to enjoy this great place and its benefits:

  1. you arrive there and you look at the lanscape. The sun is high in the blue sky, the water is clear, the moutains are sand-colored. It looks like Mars planet.
  2. you dress up with your bathing suit.
  3. you take a little train from the Spa building to the beach.
  4. to enter into the sea.
  5. and you FLOAT!
  6. you accidentally put some water in your eyes. It’s so salted it burns, ouch…
  7. you go out of the water, and put a lot of mud (rich in mineral and salt) on your body, your face and your hair. You look like Shrek but it’s so funny.
  8. you wait until it gets dry.
  9. you take a shower and remove all the mud.
  10. You have a baby skin: so soft!

Finally, we all jumped into the bus and slept during the way back to Jerusalem.

Day 5: what we have seen or learned in the Dead Sea

Here is a list of what we have seen or learned today in the Dead Sea:

  • Israel is the country of wifi. You can find a free hotspot almost everywhere.
  • “the dead sea is dead” quoting Ricardo. Actually it’s so salted that no fishes or plants can live in the water.
  • To celebrate the end of Independence day in Israel, people organize picnic with their family.
  • there is a big business in beauty creams made with Dead Sea minerals or mud.
  • people really float in the Dead Sea, it’s not a myth.
  • we have seen a Better Place station (where you can switch your electric car battery) on the road between Tel Aviv and the Dead Sea.

The anecdote of the day: so much sun!

We used more solar cream in one day in the Dead Sea than in one summer month in Paris, no kidding!
