Ein Gedi, Israel

We travelled through the desert, past wild flowers, palm groves, Lot’s wife and Mt Sodom, from the Red Sea to the Dead, with the Med still to come. A barefoot youth toting a machine gun wandered by.

We visited Masada, King Herod’s mountaintop fort.

We’re staying in Ein Gedi Kibbutz for a few days in a room which used to be a kibbutznik’s house. It has a view of  Wadi Arugot on one side, and the Dead Sea, backed by Jordan’s mountains on the other.
