After enduring the hike of Petra, I needed a return to relaxation. Without a plan, I hopped into the Uber and told him to take me to the Dead Sea. He asked if I had a specific place in mind and I said the public entrance. He said absolutely not and asked if I would rather go to a resort. Having done no research, I agreed to follow his advice and we were taken to a luxurious oasis called the OH Beach Resort.
The Dead Sea
Did you know that the lowest point in the world is the Dead Sea at 394.6 m (1269 ft) below sea level? I did not. Do you believe that you will actually float because of the density of the water? I did not. Unbelievable is a great word to describe how it when I first entered the water.
After relaxing, I was given a proper mud bath and went back in the sea to float on.
Reading the Newspaper
While it does not compare to my photos from the Salt Flats in Bolivia, I did take the customary photo reading the newspaper.
TPOL’s TIP: Bring your reading glasses. There’s lots of news in the Middle East.
After I had my fill of NaCl, I went to the pool to relax and take photos of the sunset.
The infinity pool was a great place to spend the rest of the afternoon.
While it’s not my favorite hobby, I did smoke some argelh. Like the newspaper, it’s important to get that customary smoke-filled photo.
Dead Sea is a must see before you die.
