THE DEAD SEA: The heavy gravity content of the water in the Dead Sea keeps the body from from sinking and one can relax on the water without making the slightest movement. No I did not go swimming in the Dead Sea. I did stick my hand down in the water and regret that I did that. The water has a very oily, grimy and sticky feeling. It was very difficult to wash my hands off even with soap. So one can only imagine how bad it would be to get it on your whole body and hair. I will let you tell me about it because I choose not to do it.
