Here are the morning after photographs which are beautiful.
The first photograph is of the beautiful sunrise this morning from my home in the Judean Desert in Arad, Israel after the “star party.”
We did see a few shooting stars along with the beautiful almost full moon. The few shooting stars moved either very quickly or very slowly and it was not as breathtaking as I thought it would be.
I have another shooting star party soon so maybe that night will be more fascinating.
There are shooting stars that can be seen every night this week throughout the Middle East.
The second photograph is of me in front of the beautiful sunset tonight. It was taken at the sunset barbecue from my home at Zman Midbar Eco Spirit Lodge for Peace in Arad.
I just love living in the World of Love and here are more reasons why:
Today some Bedouins slaughtered their sheep and cattle and had some extra fresh meat they did not need. They wanted to know if they could give us some.
One of my friends at Zman Midbar Eco Spirit Lodge for Peace, who like me is also not a vegetarian, prepared the fire for the barbecue. A group of us had a delicious dinner of lamb and hamburgers along with fresh vegetables which were grown here in Israel.
We also had delicious Israeli wine and Israeli beer. I had some wine tonight and have had the dark beer too. Both are wonderful and famous too.
Throughout the day at Zman Midbar Eco Spirit Lodge for Peace we make delicious herbal tea from the herbs we grow. I have learned so much about Israeli gardening and foods.
The necklace I am wearing in the photograph is one that a very nice Bedouin gave me. One evening he stopped by at Zman Midbar Eco Spirit Lodge for Peace just to visit. He was enjoying our special Middle Eastern coffee and playing with a string of beautiful turquoise, white and black beads. I asked him about them. He showed me that they are separated into three sections with a gold bead which divides the number of morning, afternoon and evening prayers they say. Bedouins are Muslims. Each bead represents a prayer. I was fascinated and he told me I could have the beads so I wear this beautiful string of beads with my necklace of a camel I bought when I went to Jordan and rode a camel.
By the way, my morning Dead Sea swim was delightful. I love the view of the Desert Mountains in one direction and the view of Jordan in the other direction. Plus, there are always interesting people and we have great conversations.
Tomorrow is another busy and fun day here in the Judean Desert in Arad, Israel. I am going to try to go the Arad Club to swim some laps which I really enjoy. At the Dead Sea you just float around, talk and swim short distances.
I just love so many things the Judean Desert has to offer and I am very grateful I am able to enjoy them. I hope you are also having busy and fun days and meeting kind, caring and interesting people like I am.
If not, think about changing your life like I did by coming to Israel. I have traveled all around Israel and my favorite place to enjoy my new life is here in the Judean Desert at Zman Midbar Eco Spirit Lodge for Peace. The people are wonderful, its natural beauty is amazing and it is very conveniently located to many great sites and Israeli cities.
Well, shalom (good bye and peace in Hebrew) from Israel and lila tov (good night in Hebrew).
