More Israel with Charles. We visit the Galilee and the Roman city of Scythopolis, before swimming (floating?) in the Dead Sea. We follow that up with a night of fun smoking cigars and dancing in Tel Aviv. The next day found us having lunch in Be’er Sheva and then pitching out into the deep desert for visits to Mitzpe Ramon and Nitzanna.
