Today we went to Masada, a fortress built on the top of a mountain overlooking the Dead Sea. Dad hiked up and we took the cable car. There was a beautiful view and it was stinking hot. Then we all hiked down together. It was hard because of all the loose gravel and the stairs were a weird length apart. There was also a bunch of Israeli teenagers blocking the path!
After Masada, we drove to a little town on the Dead Sea, and stopped at a public beach. We went into the water to cool off. It was really weird to sit in the water and float like it was zero gravity. It was fun, but also awkward to be in the water. The salt makes you skin dry and sticky.
