Rock from Dead Sea

My prized acquistion from the Dead Sea. I was able to take rocks and soil home from Israel. I received the red string from the Kotel.

My Special Rock

I did received plenty of additional attention paid to my carry-on luggage as this rock was hefty and suspicious in the xray. My luggage was searched twice, in Israel and then in the US for the connectiong flight. A girl has to to what she has to do! My rock has a new home and I can feel Israel, my home, every day.
