Day 9: Tourists at Masada, Dead Sea, Scrolls, Dates

Day 9: Today we were tourists. We said goodbye to Jerusalem and began our journey to Galilee.

Our first stop was Masada. Herad the Great built this amazing fort over looking the Dead Sea. It became famous for protecting Jewish rebels after the fall of the temple for three years. An elaborate water, food and defense system have them the endurance before their inevitable fate. This photo is of the eastern facing corner - where the King's residence was built on three levels.

The following photos tell the rest of the story pretty well.
