car got stuck
Well I am back yet again from another camping trip in the desert. This one started out with quite the bang when our bus driver promptly got in an accident with a man in Bersheva... The other driver was hit so hard his car completely spun out into the lights but noone was hurt... although the other driver was quite upset... made for quite the beginning of the trip.

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.
