It turns out that I confused a couple of people, which is not unusual. These are pictures from our second day in Israel. I'm not STILL in Israel though. I'm just really, really slow at posting the pictures.
I took about six kajillion photos of palm trees. I'll spare you all but these few though:
Actually, I lied. Here are a few more:
Most of the palm tree pictures I took out of the car window on the way to the Dead Sea at Ein Gedi. The water in the Dead Sea is some of the saltiest on earth and I can tell you from personal experience that it tastes terrible; I would never have imagined that there's a big problem with people drinking it. But it seems I'm just lacking in imagination:
Here's the Dead Sea:
And here are The-Guy, My Boy, and Older and Younger Gal a floatin' in the salty stuff:
All that stuff near the bottom of the picture you can sort of see under the water are like rocks covered in salt or rocks made of salt. The salt just chunks up like this:
And since that's probably about as many palm trees and salt rocks most people need to see on any given day, I'll stop for now. Have a great weekend everyone!
