In the meanwhile I must hurry up to finish my promised two photo blogs of the Holy Land starting here with Masada.
|Heading by bus through a desert southeast |
to visit Masada, Israel's national shrine.
|Approaching the Dead Sea|
|Willkommen next-to-last at a shopping stop|
|Outside the shop beautiful blossoms on bushes caught our eye|
|The high plateau of Masada is on the right, the National Museum on the left |
but this was not the correct approach either for us or for the Romans.
|German cartographers noted Turm, Kaserne, and Kirche|
|A few people walked but most took the cable car|
|Our guide Johannes showed us: 40.1% relative humidity|
at 30.1 degrees Celsius on the plateau
|The remains of Herod's north palace|
|The remainder of the Roman ramp|
|The last ten lots bearing the names of the last ten men|
|Ruins of the Byzantine church sketched above|
|Driving to the bathing area along the Dead Sea. |
What you see along the shoreline are no whitecaps but salt deposits.
|The moment Red Baron had and possibly you have been waiting for.|
