The Dead Sea
I must be the only one who went to the Dead Sea and not swim in it. I did touch and feel the water. It was slimy. Not that it was bad, it just felt that way.
We were advised not to take a dip more than 20 minutes in the water at each time. I do know someone who floated on it for hours. Another traveler told us that the water really stung.
Anyway, I was most worried about the water getting into my eyes. That was the reason why I didn't take a dip.
Swim in the Dead Sea or not, I was thrilled to see it and now I can say that I've been.
