After a night in the Bedouin tents, we have to admit we were a bit tired from the lack of sleep. However, hanging out by the bonfire and enjoying our time together was worth it! We headed to Masada very shortly after eating breakfast, starting our day off with one of the most challenging and inspiring hikes we have done. We ascended up the Roman path, the higher we got the larger to view of the incredible desert. Up top, we learned about the Masada story and how it is still significant to contemporary Israel society. Seeing the old buildings, having incredible picture taking opportunities, and achieving this hike were highlight that we will remember for the rest of our lives. We descended down the snake path, and quickly headed towards another highly anticipated stop – the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, and to our surprise, rapidly shrinking due to the climate, mineral extractions, and much more. We raced off the bus to get as much time as we could in the famous body of water and it was worth it. The mud was rejuvenating. The water required no effort to float on top of. It was quite different than the beaches in Florida! After spending the day in the desert, it was time to head up to Tel Aviv, where we were able to explore the city and enjoy a night out of a group. Looking forward to our adventures tomorrow!
