At 1 p.m. on August 3, 2016, the bus took us to Jordan for a quick run from Petra to the Dead Sea. We had a bumpy road and stayed at a hotel by the Dead Sea at 5 p.m. Hurry into the room, put down your luggage and head for the Dead Sea. This area of hotels gathered and the Dead Sea swimming pool was a short walk from the back door of the hotel. When the water is clear, the cobblestones are filled in, and the waist is deep, people lie on their backs and float on the water. The Hotel brought out a magazine, pretended to read and take pictures. After 15 minutes, go ashore and rinse with clear water. The water that accidentally enters is salty. The water that enters the eyes burns even more. Return to the room and wash with soap. The Dead Sea is so exciting that we go to the beach in the evening, from 6:30 to 7:20, waiting to see the sunset of the Dead Sea Lake. The lake is quiet, without waves and even no ripples. On the other side of the lake, there is a small hill. The sun slowly descends, and the light turns from white to red. It shakes the golden light of ten thousand feet off the lake. There are two suns in the sky and in the water. There is a swimming pool under my feet. There are many bananas and coconut trees around it. There is no shadow of the desert and no speed of the Dead Sea. High-pitched speakers play music, some Arabs sit smoking cigarettes, after discussion also to taste, light, but also accompanied by the aroma of fruit. At 7:45 a.m. on August 4, I went to the Dead Sea again. For more than an hour, I first applied the mud on my body. The swimming pool was provided. A bucket was put on, and I smeared all over my body. After 15 minutes, I washed my skin and felt smooth. Swimming in the Dead Sea, from the shore to the deep sea, can only backstroke, not breaststroke, there is water entrance too salty, very want to drink water, the sea water into the eyes want to wipe, but can not wipe, can only close your eyes. Fortunately, you can stop and stretch your hands and feet to the sky. Arab ladies also come to soak in the Dead Sea. They take off their robes, wear long trousers and sportswear. Their heads are still wrapped. Some are just soaking their feet. Young people are also muddy, soaking in water and opening up a little. The Dead Sea is 80 kilometers long, 18 kilometers wide and 1020 square kilometers in area. It has two of the world's deepest saltwater lakes, with an average depth of 300 meters and a maximum depth of 415 meters. The lowest Lake in the world, the lake is 422 meters above sea level. The Dead Sea contains 8.6 times as much salt as normal seawater. There are only bacteria and green algae in the water. There are no other organisms. On the big rocks along the shore, there is a layer of white flower salt. There are no flowers and plants on the shore and surrounding areas, so the fate "Dead Sea". High salt content, people will not sink into the water, but also can not swim, can only float upside down, this is the Dead Sea. The main reason for the formation of the Dead Sea is that evaporation is much greater than rainfall. It is located in the desert area, with an average annual rainfall of 50 mm and an evaporation of 1 400 mm. The river water flowing into the Dead Sea evaporates, leaving minerals behind. The Dead Sea is approaching death. The Jordan River water supplied to it is decreasing day by day. The lake surface is getting smaller and smaller, but the salinity of the water is getting higher and higher. In the past 50 years, the lake surface of the Dead Sea has dropped by 17 meters. Scientists fear that the Dead Sea will disappear from the Earth in the near future. Israel and Jordan have a plan to divert the Red Sea into the Dead Sea. It is also the South-to-North Water Transfer Project, which is still under discussion.
The scenery of the Dead Sea is invincible. You must come here in your lifetime. I heard from childhood that the Dead Sea can neither swim nor float nor drown. It's not right to tell you after experience. Salt is so dense that it can absolutely float. It's deceptive to drown without drowning. It's easier to drown than the ordinary sea. As for swimming, you may not imagine that it's particularly easy to choke. After choking, it's very dangerous. So try to be close to the shore and not too far away from the shore, especially when the wind and waves are big, the eyes will not open at all. It is suggested to wear swimming goggles and buckled sandals to wrap your toes. Don't be misled by the floating pictures you see. Imagination is too romantic. Safety first, the salt layer on the reef is very hard and sharp. In addition to these, other are very beautiful, calm, it is necessary to shape it. Suggestions and companions together, floating alone, whether you are a good swimmer or not, there is a certain danger. You probably won't be told in this travel strategy.
The Dead Sea is located at the border between Israel and Jordan. The scenery of the Dead Sea in Jordan is better than that in Israel. The Dead Sea `immortality'refers not only to the inability of swimmers to drown, but also to the inactivity of grass around the Dead Sea and the absence of any living things to survive. One of the most interesting things in the floating life of the Dead Sea is that there is no regret in the coming life. Driving all the way downhill to the famous world chain resort in the Dead Sea, originating from the Dead Sea, which is the lowest point in the world at an altitude of minus 417 meters, can be called the belly button eye of the world!
The Dead Sea, situated between Israel, Jordan and Palestine, is the lowest point in the world and also known as the navel of the earth. Many mysterious legends of the Dead Sea have attracted a large number of tourists from all over the world to spend their holidays. We stayed at the Swiss Hotel near the Dead Sea in Jordan, put down our luggage and immediately went to see the legendary Dead Sea. Finally, we realized our dream of floating in the Dead Sea.
In the early morning, we can finally deduce the illustrations in the primary school textbooks, floating in the "magical Dead Sea" with newspapers. The Dead Sea is really interesting, no matter how arbitrary shape, it just can't sink down, like sitting on a big soft waxy jelly. Floating for a long time, the body will begin to feel greasy, accidentally water into the eyes or mouth is the real experience of hot eyes. Free fresh water showers, beach chairs, etc. are available after the experience. Fish and other aquatic organisms are difficult to survive in the Dead Sea. There are only bacteria and green algae in the water but no other organisms. There are no flowers and plants growing on the shore or in the surrounding areas, so people call it the "Dead Sea".
On the waves of the Dead Sea, I seem to be sleeping in a half-dream and half-awake room. The desert mountains in the distance reflect the shadow of the sunset, and the Dead Sea at 6 p.m. is quiet and gentle. There was a cool breeze blowing in my ear, which made me forget that I was in the hinterland of the desert. The feeling of floating in the belly button of the earth is indescribable.
The Dead Sea is really salty. A mouthful of water is better than a month's salt. The buoyancy of the Dead Sea is also very large. It can float freely without a life buoy. The Dead Sea is also very hot, with no shade on either side, and the sun is very strong. The Dead Sea is beautiful and worth visiting.
The Dead Sea Hotel is beautiful and great. Arabic style, with its own swimming pool, and the Dead Sea floating area. I really want to do spa, but unfortunately the day is full, because it is the second group tour to leave, unfortunately. In early November, there were few floating people and they were very comfortable.
That is to say, soak in the water, I heard that the water splashed into the eyes will be very painful, so I dare not play happily. Holiday hotels along the Dead Sea in Jordan are all good. They have free mud to be smeared by guests and rubbed off with sand and gravel 20 minutes later. It's the remote area around the hotel. Dinner can only be enjoyed in the hotel.
The Dead Sea Lake is called "Dead Sea" because of its high salinity, only bacteria and green algae in the water, and no fish and other organisms survive. Because the salt content in the sea water is too high and the buoyancy is very high, people will not sink in the Dead Sea, so it is also said that the Dead Sea will not die. The Dead Sea is the lowest land surface in the world, 420 meters below sea level, known as the belly button of the world. Dead Sea mineral-rich seawater and extracted black mud, said to have beauty wonders, not afraid of allergies can buy some Dead Sea mud skin care products. When I was a child, I saw the dead sea floating in my textbooks and reading newspapers. It finally came true.
