Started the day at the Church of John the Baptist and then went to Bethany where Lazarus was raised from the dead. Then on to the Dead Sea. We stopped at an overlook of the old road from Jericho to Jerusalem and then on to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Qumran was very hot. Went swimming in the Dead Sea. You couldn't sink if you tried. Salt content is over 30%. What an experience.
