i visited the Dead Sea from the Israeli side:
And i got to
swim float in it from the Jordanian side:
Floating there was a feeling i can't describe. i kept laughing out loud every time my feet popped up to the surface. My favorite was walking along the ocean floor. Then i would realize that my feet weren't touching the floor anymore, but i was still bouncing along as if they were.
After an hour bobbing on the top of the salty water, i left feeling silky smooth and completely relaxed. Healing powers indeed.
