  3. What happened at the Israel/West Bank border? – We were smart enough not to shoot with the camera which led to guards being smart enough to not shoot as well.

    What a diverse country! I loved your mud photos. I have no doubt that this place would be so hot (like it is here in Australia). Great photo summary – I feel like I learned a lot 🙂

    Must try a mud bath, do you have to apply the mud yourself or does somebody do it for you?
