A lunch at Mahane Yehuda Market

After visiting Yad Vashem, we needed something to cheer us up. So we went to Mahane Yehuda Market to have lunch.

It’s a lively and overcrowded place where you can find almost everything for cooking and eating: fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, spices, dried fruits and pastries, yummy!

We had some falafel sandwiches. It was fat and tasty! After that we were ready for a long walk in the old city of Jerusalem.

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.
