Floating in the Dead Sea

What fun we have had today at the Dead Sea. It is 450 metres below sea level and has the saltiest water in the world. The salty water makes things really buoyant, fortunately including us - check out the photos.
When we got to the water's edge the sand was covered in a solid salt crust and we walked over it and into the sea.
Darren's mum can't swim and had never floated before so the first few attempts were a bit traumatic, but she soon got the hang of it.
Obviously, the only thing there is to do is to pose for silly photos, mess around and just have a good laugh.
We took it one step further and covered ourselves in salty mud, then stood around waiting for it to set. We tried to wash it all off, but got the hotel towels really dirty, so I hope they don't mind too much.
The tour guide said that the mud would make us all look 20 years younger so keep an eye on the blog over the next few days to see if you still recognise us.
