I'm hurt, Carole, they were her boots not mine.  :'(

View from Mt Nebo, where it is claimed that Moses looked down upon the Holy Land, and the memorial that commemorates this fact.
At that time Moses was forbidden to enter the Holy Land. Two days before I took the photos a couple who were due to join our party were denied access from the opposite direction. I realise that they were for entirely different reasons but it still struck me as proving how little life can change in small ways even over thousands of years.

The Dead Sea with a group of bathers, or should that be floaters? Photo taken from the comfort of a chair outside the restaurant while enjoying an ice-cream in the sun.
