... slowly roast dinner over an open fire as our ancestors did. Just remember that the desert is very cold at night.
The next morning we started by making breakfast which consisted of eggs, potatoes and the leftover Poyke from the previous night. I’m not going to lie, I like this camping experience much more than a real one. After we left Metzoke Dragot, we visited the Dead Sea, but Hot Springs in it, ...
