Museum, Jordan River, Jericho, Qumran, Dead Sea & Camels
by Steve Ray on October 2, 2023
This is also called the fun day! Some people stay back in Jerusalem to do other things. We all have breakfast and mass together at the Notre Dame Center. Then but those who choose to take the Optional Day boarded the bus and headed to the Israel Museum before descend to the lowest place on the face of the Earth — the Jordan Valley. After the Jordan River we have lunch in Jericho.
We drive by Qumran and view it from the road to discuss the city and its inhabitants the Essenes. Then down to the Dead Sea where everybody floats, and then camel rides as everyone laughs and screams and has good fun before heading back up to a Jerusalem for dinner and a good night sleep.
