We took the cable car to the top of the Masada, then took the cable car back, some of our group members decided not 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 to take the cable car, but to walk down to the bottom, it took them almost 30 minutes to walk 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 down, they call the path the snake path. We learned 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 about the Masada history, how Jewish rebels defended the fortress 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 and finally all the rebels committed suicide after months of 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 siege. On top of the Masada fortress, we walked around and viewed the remains of the palaces, the bath house for Roman style public bath, cistern to reserve rain water etc.
The Dead Sea was a magic trip, totally new experience. We arrived at a resort hotel, used their 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 shower, washroom, swimming pool etc facilities. Floating on the dead sea water was a wonderful experience, and against our 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 normal understanding about physics law, but it did happened and 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 experienced it in person. The temperature was a little bit 選擇權交易時間暗藏3個玄機 low, and I felt cold in the water, I think it was around 16 Celsius degree.
Lastly the tour guide was excellent, his name is Asaf Shaked.
