Our time in Jerusalem was so amazing! I can’t wait to tell you all about not only Jerusalem but all of Israel, including our visit to the Dead Sea exploring the streets and alleys of Jerusalem and visiting the oldest city in the world.
On Saturday we went to the Dead Sea. Yep! It was really dead. They call it the Dead Sea because it is really, really salty. How salty, you ask? Well, it has so much salt that if you drink too much of it, you could die! Still, after all that, you can swim in it. Well, not really swim. More like float. That’s right you can’t swim in it because if you put your face in it, it will scorch your face because of all the salt. The craziest thing of all is that they made a resort here. They have everything from a pool to sunbathing. They have it all but we didn’t get a room there. It cost a lot of money.
Next, I am going to tell you about Jerusalem. If you read the bible you would know that Jesus got crucified in Jerusalem. On Friday we strolled down the street that Jesus walked when he died. The street is called Via Dolorosa. In the old town, they have markets – a lot like Morocco but so much cleaner. Finally, we went to the Temple Mount. The Temple Mount is a holy place for Muslims. Christians are only allowed in at certain times to visit the site.
Did you know that the oldest city in the world is in Israel? The city is called Jericho. The city of Jericho is also the lowest city in the world. Next, I am going to tell you about the cable car. The cable car is the same as any cable car but it was worth mentioning. It was worth mentioning because it leads up to a really cool monastery on the Mount of Temptation. Finally, I am going to tell you about The Mount of Temptation. The Mount of Temptation is where Jesus was tempted by the devil.
Sadly our time in Israel is over. Thank you for reading about the Dead Sea, Jerusalem and Jericho. Now we are in a beautiful town called Dubrovnik, which I can’t wait to tell you all about.
