Jerusalem: Day 4

First thing this morning we went to Masada. We took a cable car up. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting (I hate heights as well as enclosed spaces.) It was a fast cable car too! We got to look down on the people hiking up the mountain.

After we got up, we did a bunch of stuff touring the fortress which was actually really cool! We also took the cable car down. Didn't like that as much.

After Masada we went to the Dead Sea. I was hesitant at first to get in (Or more realistically flat-out refused to go in until half our time was up) but it also took a great deal of effort getting me out. Once I got in I loved it. It was soooooooooooooooooooooo weird though! But... I liked it anyway. Yup: that's me!

After the Dead Sea (I would've stayed there all day) we went to this camel-riding thingy. I did not like it AT ALL. For one thing, it was only like five minutes (Not complaining) and it took like 20 minutes to get there and I don't even wanna know how long to get back. Second: The camels were... How should I say this...? Interesting. Another thing is that we- that is they- were walking right on the edge. And I mean right on the edge. Of a "cliffish"/" mountainish" kind of thing. And our camel, when it was laying down so we could get off, instead of gradually, slowly, comfortably, going down like the other ones, it just when "Thump!" and I didn't and probably couldn't have, but I felt like a almost fell off. It was definitely NOT among my favorite things so far.

Overall, it was a good day, and the Dead Sea ended up being being my favorite thing on the trip so far. Pay attention to the "so far" though. My favorite thing may change. The Dead Sea was pretty cool though.

Oh! And I almost forgot! We're going to this light show in the Old City! I'll post about it tomorrow if I have time.
