here. It's the new-ish Kempinski hotel on the Dead Sea (Jordan side), and it was heaven. Swimming in the Dead Sea - or rather, floating - was strange. You can't put your head under the water because it's so salty, and i don't know whether it's something to do with the saltiness, but you do feel lighter in the water. We laughed a lot, because it was quite windy that day, and we had to hang on to a rope to avoid drifting away! I went all-out and smothered my face with Dead Sea mud. Felt absolutely fantastic afterwards; my skin has probably never been so soft. I know, I'm a very lucky girl - this really was a taste of the good life.
