Frozen sea? Nope, the sea is as warm as in the bathtub
Sunset above the lowest point on earth
Not ice but salt cristals
Let's move - it's going to get hot again!
Tea-break in the village's shop
The tiny one wants to give it a try...
Regaling herself with the freshly roasted nuts...
...while Brö can't help himself sniffing around the cardamon coffee-shops
Our beloved bread
We follow the path through deeply carved valleys
Cracked soil - it's bone dry out here

Our reward: Beathtaking outlook
Whatever you are craving for - if you can find it...

Boys...
Our young business-minded guide
In the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia

Lunch break on goat excrements - in return it's shady!
Mama, what are they looking at?
BBQ lifted out of the subterraneous oven
Delicious dinner in bedouin camp
Sleeping freely under the stars - is there anything more beautiful?
Look into the future - which direction will we take?
