After surviving the drive, we went to the Kibbutz that Ben Gurion spent the rest of his life at after serving as prime minister. We even got to talk with this really old kibbutznik who knew Ben Gurion when he was a resident there. There was a museum that we went through there and also his house, which was left exactly how it was when he was alive... with books all over the place.
We spent the night in a Beduoin camp... as per usual and then got up ridiculously early this morning to hike across the Makhtesh Ramon, which is essentially a giant crater (sort of like the grand canyon). It was a really beautiful hike but also extremely hot... it took us about 9 hours to do, despite my friends attempt to speed up this process by running down the mountains... I'm a bit too exhausted to write any reflective prose, but I just wanted to get up my pictures while I had interweb. More later.
