Mitzpe Ramon in the Negev

This Israeli desert town sits near the Ramon Crater, described as the largest geological crater in the earth. We visited the site -- after traversing the small town site where Ibex graze on grass outside the 60's apartments. It is an imposing geological creation; with added interest historically as it is on the ancient Spice Route, where precious spices were shipped from Yemen to Gaza by highly organized Arab traders.

It is warm, sunny, hot but not intolerable, a perfect resort environment.

But I couldn't rest in peace last night. I am dealing with a business challenge at home -- things are working out okay, but I've been 'working' far more than any time during this vacation (and sleeping less).
