Karin finally graced us with a visit in January 2003. She was hesitant at first because of the terrorist activities that had been happening here, but I guess she finally became convinced it was actually as safe here as anywhere else. You can see by the silly grin on my face how happy I was to have Karin here.
Arad-Massada walk. This is a yearly hike (in February usually) that starts from Arad (at a height of +600 meters) and goes to Massada (height -200 meters) which stands about 200 meters above the Dead Sea (the Dead Sea level is about 400 meters below sea level). You might meet some nice people and the area is fantastic, especially the view of Massada as you top the final ridge before the descent to Massada. The total walk is about 23 kilometers.
PS: The picture is my daughter, with Massada in the background as seen from the Roman ramp, when she received her award for finishing the whole walk.
Here you can see the inside of the cavemans home, it is simple, but with all the pleasures of home..you of course have your bottled water and soft toilet paper, what cavehome would be without.
This is what our feet looked like after we did that short downhill section...the feet belong to Gulench and Martin...and those are mine on the right hand side (yes the hairy ones).
We decided that we could not ride down this series of steps, so again the bikes go on our shoulders.
