Today the "49ers" went on the long-awaited voyage to the Dead Sea. As far as the voyage is concerned, it was pretty easy because Yisrael (our bus driver) drove us right up to the beach.
After two minutes of anticipation, we went right in. As everyone knows, you simply float in the Dead Sea. It is my favorite beach by far. All the pleasures of the beach and water, but way less effort to stay afloat.
A few minutes later, the Dead Sea mud came out. Besides looking aweeesommee, it exfoliates your skin to a silky-smooth finish.
Although we are no longer at the Dead Sea, I am taking some of it back to the U.S. with me. Let me explain. The Dead Sea is 400 meters below sea level, so the ozone is thicker than normal. Thus, Boaz and Roni (Israelis on our trip) told me that you cannot get sunburned. Well, they were wrong. My skin went from a milky white to a deep reddish hue. I cannot believe today is the last day of the trip. The only part of me happy about that is my sunburns.
Ciao from Jerusalem,
