Tai Chi at the Dead Sea, Jordan
Submitted: Apr 22, '07
Great Travel Moment
A full-body mud mask is amust on any Dead Sea visit. Yes, bobbing like a cork in the unsinkable water is a blast. But the mineral-rich mud can revive even the weariest of Middle East travelers. You begin by scooping up mud from the sea floor and rubbing it all over your body. Then you must allow the mud to dry before rinsing off.I, like most people, just sat on the beach and waited. Others took a stroll or jogged along the shore. But this group of young men would have none of that. Instead, they practiced Tai Chi as they waited for the mud to dry. For them and everyone watching including me - the drying time flew by. Next time, it's Tai Chi at the Dead Sea for me.
