2am, thursday night. I meet two friends and we start the journey to the dead sea. As we travel away from central Israel and toward the east, the landscape changes from green (as much as possible after a hot summer) to yellow, revealing the vast and arid desert.
The dead sea is a disaster zone. Long years of neglect from the government and shameless pumping by commercial companies have caused it to dry and today it's only a shadow of what it used to be. On top of that, the lack of water has caused numerous sinkholes to suddenly appear, causing damage and sometimes fatalities.
The only good thing is that these sinkholes are amazingly beautiful.
