Afterwards we went to one of the restaurants at the Marriott for drinks and while we were there a belly dancer came out
Following drinks we went to another restaurant at the hotel and ate. Oh my goodness was the food ever good! It was a buffet with a bunch of salads, hot food, and desserts....I ate way too much but it was worth it! The next day we woke up and went down to the pool to tan. After a little while we went into the Dead Sea again and then put mud all over our bodies. It was the craziest feeling and it also obviously looked weird. We couldn't really move....in the picture we took we look mad/sad/apathetic due to the fact that we couldn't smile because our face was frozen in the position that the mud had dried to....I would compare what my skin looked like to elephant skin!
After it fully dried we got back in the Dead Sea to wash it off and ended up staying in there for quite awhile. The Dead Sea is also a crazy experience.....you can't swim; all you can do is float. You can try to "stand" in the water but it's impossible; your legs just float/bounce back up to the surface of the water. It's a really good workout though if you pretend to "run" in the water because you're pushing all the salty, heavy water :) Your skin also gets an amazing spa treatment....after this weekend my skin was soooo soft from all the salt and mud!! After "swimming" in the Dead Sea we laid out again by the pool, then went in the sauna, then got ready for lunch, ate lunch, and then went home......I absolutely can't wait to go back to the Dead Sea soon!!!
