The Dead Sea is a place 40 minutes away from were I live(Amman the capital of Jordan) it is the lowest point on earth and is so much fun.
There are swimming pools and beaches, and special mud that is very good for the skin. Lots of people go there for medical reasons as well as just to enjoy the weather, pools and beaches.
You may be thinking why it is called the Dead Sea; well it is called the Dead Sea because it is so salty that there are no animals living in it. A very cool fact about it is that if you swim in the Sea, you FLOAT because of all the salt in it!
Me and my friends went down with my family and we had a blast.
We first went to the room in the Hotel and changed into our swimming suits and then we hit the pool.
Then we decided to go down to the beach and put some mud on--that was lots of fun.
We were putting it all over our bodies and were accidently throwing it on each other.
After all the excitement we went to the restaurant Champions
and had the best birthday cake ever and ate a delicious supper!
In the end my friends went back to Amman but me and my family stayed and spent a night at the Dead Sea! It was a great day and a fun birthday I wish I can go back in time and have have my birthday one more time.
