Info from Yesterday

After a very good breakfast we left to see Magdala.  The home town of Mary Magdalene.  (Mary of Magdala) Archeologists have recentlty found the town. It is a fascinating find.

We left Magdala to see a first century boat found in the Sea of Galilee.

We then proceeded to Bet She’an.  The capital of The Decopolis. The ruins is massive. From theaters to temples, to public bathhouses. This is the city where Saul and his sons bodies were put on the city wall. This is a very significant ruins that have been found.

We rode by Country of Jordan, went through the area called The West Bank.  It is actually the area of Samaria. No one locally calls it The West Bank. We rode by the city of Jericho. Saw Mount Nebo where Moses was buried by God. The whole area is Desert.

We ate lunch at Qumran. Yes, the place where the dead sea scrolls are found.

We passed and looked at the area of Masada.  We go there tomorrow.

We ended up at the Dead Sea. We floated in the Sea. Some took mud baths. We had a good time.
