    Vlad has a casual Friday
    By J.R.
    No, nothing special happening here. Just a mundane day.

    Background info: it's a non working day


    At the neighborhood grocery store by the Hummus fridge



    All done. Now for the long 2 minute walk home



    Just hanging around the hedge



    The adjoining town.
    Someone at the municipality is a WIS for sure as they put up 2-3 clocks like this and a few red LED digital clocks.
    It is not a regular thing around this region.



    Later at my Mom's place with the kids



    And a half can of this local brand.
    Not bad at all vs popular international beers. IMHO way better than most of the ultra commercial ones.



    Crumpets (pancakes ) - mixed by Mom, fried by myself.

    Hey everybody, I really do love this thread and hearing of Vlad's exploits across the globe! OhDark30....add me to the list whenever you get the chance! I'll be glad to host him and shoot a few pics of him in my home State of Arkansas!

    Feeling a little sad that Dan has had to move on.....he helped me a TON over the last couple of years. One hell of a guy and I will miss him.

    Hi Bobby, good to see you round! I've added you to the list.
    Wow, we've got Vlad busy for a few years to come, I'm guessing

    Yeah, it sounds like he's going to be one WELL TRAVELLED timepiece! Not that he doesn't already have QUITE a few miles behind him (along with a few scrapes, bruises and reconstructive surgery).... LOL!

    Vlad Visits The Dead Sea
    By J.R.

    I needed to do some work at my customer on Sunday and Monday so I decided to stay over at a nearby town 25 minute drive (rather than traveling 2.5 hour in each direction twice) The customer is a chemical plant which manufactures products based on dead sea water and which is situated some 55km from the Dead Sea.
    So on the second day I said what the heck - I'll treat you guys to some Dead Sea pics and take Vlad to the lowest place on Earth's land.



    At the place I stayed for the night - in Arad, Some 20 minutes from the plant elevated 800m above sea level








    On the way to the plant






    Magnesium compound Factory





    The journey begins after a long intense 2 days




    That's the


    The Dead Sea, I need to decline




    Getting closer







    And to the south - continuation of The Arava desert in the Jordan valley rift







    Already in the rift - southern dead sea and the Hotels




    Electric or telephone poles in the water - look at the salt buildup at the bottom of the pole




    Dead sea Works - where they extract Potash from the waters used as fertilizer
    sister company of my customer







    Vlad at 423 meters below sea level, the lowest place on earth's land








    The mountains of Edom in the background, in the State of Jordan
    In Biblical times it was part of the land of Israel




    A promenade deck going inward into the sea
    This beach was seriously developed in this past year




    Giant butterfly sculptures nearby




    The Hotels
    A great place to spend a serene holiday




    On my way back - to home sweet home, around 3 hour drive

    Gotta climb 1300m up to 800m above sea level, to Arad on the twisty turny road
    and then decline gradually to almost ocean level









    With big brother




    The city of Arad



    Oh, he's always pushing into the frame
    a true fame thirsty attention leach





    Factories which produce health and spa
    products based on Dead Sea extracts




    On the road back home

    This is a fantastic thread which I'm really enjoying. OhDark30, I'm in Kent, UK (the Garden of England) and would be happy to take Vlad to see a bit of Kent next time he's in the UK.

    Absolutely cool there, jackrobinson! I hope I can make it to Israel one of these days.....I know it's a wonderful place to live and work.... Had the honor of training with several Israeli soldiers during my military time and really enjoyed their company. Anyway, the Dead Sea has always amazed me....watching people float on topof the water as if defying gravity!
    Great pictures and yet another great story to add to Vlad's travel log!!
