    Dead Sea Floating

    Some members of our team floating in the crazy water of the Dead Sea. It really is quite an experience, including the mandatory mud bath. But you don't want to get that stuff in your mouth. Oh, and don't splash your friends because they'll get mad at you when it feels like their eyes are on fire.Read more

    Is that a dock? Is the water warm?

    Did you go in?

    Ron Martin

    Oh, I see you did after I expanded your comment. Was there a shower around to wash off?

    Paul Bernard

    Yes, thank goodness. It wasn't a very pleasant experience for me. :) and yes, that's a dock. The dead sea is dropping at an astounding rate. Israel is considering pumping salanized water into the lake to get the levels back up, but environmentalists don't think that's a great idea. In 10 years it may be gone.
