be near Jericho where an orthodox monastery is built. The church there preserve the stone of temptations where Jesus had a conversation with the Tempter. The hostile environment is tempered a bit by luxury of civilization like a coffee shop etc. but it still give a taste what a challenge it was to spend long days there in the sun, thirsty and yet
looking down at the comfort of Jericho where water and other recourses are available. Somewhere there I got very excited as I found a picture of my patron saint: the Prophet Daniel in the den of lions.
