The visiting American friends and I took the bus down to the Dead Sea early this morning.
Literally DOWN--from Jerusalem's 800+ meter elevation to 422 meters (1,385 ft) below sea level at the shore of the salty sea.
These are the cliffs on the way to Ein Gedi.
You can see the water of the Dead Sea in this picture, but very faint appear the Mountains of Moab over in the Kingdom of Jordan.
Other skies from around the world are viewable starting tonight over at SkyWatch Friday.
