Masada and Qumran

 This morning we loaded the bus for our Dead Sea departure!  What a lovely few days – great weather, relaxing treatments and unique desert excursions! First stop of the day was Masada – one of King Herod’s palaces and the site of the siege  in 73 CE.  Neil, once again,  took us through several centuries as he described the events of the times.  A bite of lunch before leaving for Qumran – another amazing site and where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.  On to Jerusalem for the week – hard to believe that this is the last week of CAARI 2013.  But, we are looking forward to Purim and the upcoming sites we will be visiting.
