Hey There Everyone,
  Well, Rand and I are pretty tired after our little excursion last night up Mount Sinai.  We had left our hotel at around 11am and arrived at the base of the mountain around 1am.  We were orginally planning to take camels up the mountain, but due to many accidents involving camels and tourists falling off the mountain, we decided that it would be better to just hike it.  The hike took about 3 hours to reach the top, and was moderately difficult.  There were many coffee shops along the way that we stopped at, which was a nice break.
  After reaching the top at about 4am, we realaxed in a tea house until about 5am, when we then rented a mattress and blankets, and relaxed or slept at the top of the mountain until sunrise.  The sunrise was pretty cool, and the views of the other mountains were amazing as we were on one of the highest peaks insight.  We then took the 3000 steps down to St. Catherines Monestary for a drink and then headed back to the hotel.  We arrived back to the hotel around 11:00am, and proceeded to then sleep for a few hours and play a card game.
  So that was pretty much our day here, and we will be heading to bed soon.  God Bless you all, and by for now!!!
Trent and Randy
