On our way to En Gedi we drove alongside the Dead Sea for many miles. "The Sea of Death" also called the Salt Sea is world's saltiest body of water; it's 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. As always I was on the look out for photo-ops along the coast. When it comes to landscapes, I find myself very attracted to bodies of water. They say that water is very relaxing and soothing to the mind because as an infant, we spend months in a womb filled with liquid. The sounds that water makes simulates the experience we had in the womb. We were driving around the mountain when I looked out and I saw that there were these small ponds of water all over the banks of the Dead Sea. They were so interesting and right away I asked Etty to pull over so I can check it out. There was a danger sign warning not to enter because of “sinkholes” but when have signs ever stopped me? I grabbed my gear and climbed a few hundred feet down the mountain until I finally reached these extraordinary small pools of water.
