Photographer's Note

A shot of the Dead Sea from on of the hotel of the Jordanian coast. We had to chose an hotel since it is really important to have a shower after your bath so you don't get burnt by the heavily salted sea. It looks like that in Jordan, you can find a spot to have a swim only in the north part of the Dead Sea.

As you can guess, the Sea was named after the fact that no animal can live in that dangerous atmosphere.

The funny thing about having a swim here is that the salty water feels strange. You feel as if you had spread oil all over your body in fact. Anothe funny thing is that you need you passport since you will have to drive several military check points to reach that location from Amman or Madaba.

To get there, we followed a nice narrow road from the Nebo Mount (where Moise is burried) down to the Dead Sea. The panorama over the Dead Sea, Palestine and Israel was absolutely incredible.

Resized, levels adjusted, USM applied.
