The miracle of the Dead Sea
We've stopped in Ein Bokek to have a look at the Dead Sea and of course to experience its famous water and mud.
It was extremely hot, so we were literally running from the car to the hotel and then hiding under the umbrella.
When I entered the water it felt funny, like oil I would say. It is hard to describe all the feelings. It is definitely from the normal sea water. It is very thick and resistance is very high. It is also very very warm. Doesn't feel like water at all.
The best way is just to seat in it. You should be careful about the balance, because the water is trying to turn you around.
After bathing (you can't call it swimming) the best is to take the shower or the salt will irritate the skin.
It was one of the most interesting experiences in my life.
