After Herodion, we headed south-west, passing through the Elah valley.
We went through twice – on the way there and on the way back – so I’ve included here photos from both trips.
We stopped at a service station for lunch. The food was sub-par by comparison to previous days.
This is the first… ah, disgusting?… food I’ve had in Israel. Although the “fruit water” was all right.
I concede it doesn’t look too bad. You can’t see the inside, though. Ah, well, it cost me 27 shekels 70 (almost exactly $10).
I did see this interesting packaging from someone else, though.
The service station was right at the head of Elah Valley.
On the hill to my left (on the right) are the ruins of Azekah; the battle between David and Goliath happened somewhere between Azekah and Socho.
