You could tell the direction of this morning's cold strong wind by the direction of the palm branches.
Despite the gray sky, the Negev did not get rained on.
Today's rain, and even some snow, fell more to the north.
We visited Idan HaNegev, a big industrial park that is being built near the Bedouin city of Rahat.
The huge SodaStream plant is already in operation there, and we got to go in to see and hear the machines and the workers.
More on that in future posts.
