The Dead Sea

We enjoyed a couple of days of luxury at the Dead Sea, covering ourselves in the mineral-rich mud and floating around effortlessly in the salty water. Here, at 420 metres below sea level (the lowest point on earth!) it was a lot warmer than in Amman.

On our way from the Dead Sea to Dana, we stopped in Al-Karak to visit Kerak Castle.

I like your pictures of the Dead Sea. For me the Dead Sea it's like an oil painting: nice to look at from a certain distance, but the closer you get to, the less atractive it looks (no including the rotten smells that come from its waters). Your pictures highlight the beauty of the place; thanks!
