After Arad the road curves down to the Dead sea and is cut out through the hills.
Actually can you call them hills if they are below sea level?
Arad is about 600 meter above sea level and the Dead sea is about 400 meter below sea level.
No pictures of this road, I was too busy riding this constantly curving road in the dark, all the while dodging those camels. Did not see any camels, but it is better to keep an eye open for them.
Lots of other riders past me by, some very close in the curves.
But I must say that everybody was riding as safe as possible and not that much faster than myself.
