Death of the Dead Sea travel guide
After a long deliberation where to vacation for a few days of quiet fell the harvest on the Dead Sea.
Finally, I have not visited his southern part of dead sea for a number of years .
naw it is time to write a travel diary for saltwater, located in the lowest place in the world.
The lowest, the most salty, the most extinct
Like other days in the world that dry up and disappear because of man-made work, the Dead Sea is seriously preparing to become a legend.
the past fifty years, the flow of water from the Jordan River into the sea has been reduced from time to time, and the flood waters that are stored on both sides of the sea are also lacking.
When I was a curious child, I was captivated by the story of finding the Dead Sea Scrolls, the monks who lived along it for hundreds of years. The heroic story of the Masada fighters became a myth in Israel.
The same curiosity, mixed with a messianic element, brought 19th century European researchers to the forgotten shores of the sea. The most important researcher for me, Henry Baker Tristram, documented the flora and fauna and made an important discovery.
Henry Baker Tristram re-site the fortress of Masada.
The discovery opened a period of 150 years of excavation and rediscovery.
masad is the last bastion of the Jewish community in Israel, which fought valiantly against the Roman Empire.
