A pretty lowdown sleeping arrangement


Sleeping tonight in a hotel in Jericho, Palestine. The view out my window reveals a mosque, part of a waterpark, and the rising hills of the Wilderness of Judea.

Two men on horseback just rode by.

The prayer call is palpable.

All of Jericho is a pretty lowdown place, like a thousand feet below sea level lowdown.

Tomorrow we walk around the old city walls. Hope they’re still standing when we’re done.
