Here in Jerusalem on October 14, 2005 it's 28 degrees C or about 83 degrees F. It's a bright and sunny day. Yaacov and I are going to meet his parents at the Dead Sea this afternoon.

Yeah! Fall!

Update: We met up with Yaacov's parents at the Crowne Plaza hotel at the Dead Sea. The Crowne Plaza is a big, blah hotel but it has a really nice pool and beach right on the Dead Sea. We floated around in the water and chatted for a long time while we watched the sun set.

After getting cleaned up we ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food wasn't all that great, but there was a lot of variety. Since we're in the middle of the holidays in Israel, the hotel was FULL of people - more than half of them children. It was funny to look around the restaurant and see all of the shiny, tanned people.

Yaacov's mom prefers the Hotel Royal at the Dead Sea. If you've got any recommendations for Dead Sea accommodations, please let me know about it. You can read about my first Dead Sea experience here.
