We landed in Israel! We went straight to breakfast in a Bedouin tent and the food was amazing. We then drove to Masada and hiked up the Roman Ramp path. My group timed ourselves and finished the hike in 10 minutes! We then toured the ancient fortress and learned about the history of the Jews during the Roman times. We went to the edge of the cliff and shouted loudly as a group and heard our echo. Afterwards we took the cable car down and drove to a kibbutz on the Dead Sea. On the drive there it was interesting to see the line where the water used to be, and all the sinkholes in the area.
Once we arrived we ate lunch and had free time to shop and swim in the Dead Sea. Everyone played in the mud and enjoyed floating in the sea. We then drove to our wonderful hotel on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
