Startled and awed by what we had just luxuriated, in the midst of darkness we headed to the resort town of Sweimah, guided by the navigation system only to have a wheel locked in the loose sands of an unprepared desert road in the middle of nowhere. Desperate efforts went futile and we anxiously waited for some assistance spooked by what had just happened, only to find the true spirit of humanity, receiving unconditional help offered by each passing individual who saw us in distress in that remote location. Instances like these make you realize that goodness exists in every corner of the world, we just need to accept it without suspicion.
The moment imbibed an unwavering confidence and late at night we reached our resort at the Dead Sea. With plans of indulging in some luxury the next day, we started with a hearty breakfast, floated on the salt-laden sea, smeared the cosmetician's delight and basked in the sun at the poolside bar. Invigorated by the memories to be taken home, we headed to airport content with what we have discovered in the distant lands surrounded by global turmoil nonetheless radiating peace. Few journeys etch a long lasting memory and this one stands out.
