Images from the Hilton Spa and Resort on the Dead Sea taken on March 30th 2018 during our long weekend trip to Jordan.  During this trip we also visited Amman, Petra, and Wadi Rum.  Swimming (or rather floating) in the Dead Sea is a very interesting and strange experience that everyone should try at least once, but due to the high salt levels you should not stay in the water more than 10 minutes.  The salt water will literally pull the moisture from your body turning your skin into a giant osmotic membrane.
