Masada, Israel

We took a side trip to Masada National Park, which is the site of the last stand of the Jews in the Jewish-Roman War.  On the way, we learned about Israeli Bedouins, who are traditionally nomadic people, but many have settled in semi-permananent "towns" in the desert.

Bedouin kids look after the sheep.

This was one of my first photos in Israel.  I was going for the flags and got so much more...a few dudes from our group are inside checking out Israeli beer and a bunch are in the reflection. 

Pretty sure these guys are locals.

I like what they've done with the place.

This is the ramp built by the Romans in the year 72 that allowed them to finally overrun Masada and defeat the Jews.
