Israel day 5: the Negev desert

Day 5 we went to visit the Negev desert, drove along Bedouin settlements, visited the Ben Gurion monuments and the deep canyons in the southern parts of the Negev.
THe visit to Makhtesh Ramon, a huge and very deep crater, was very very impressive.

We stayed in not very uninteresting town Arad, which looked like a former communist eastern Europe city.
There were a lot of otrthodox Jews there, all celebrating the religious Soekov "loofhuttenfeest" feast. No idea how that is translated into English.
