Alexandra Haddad from Mexico floats in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea at Ein Gedi Spa at the Dead Sea in southern Israel. The inland sea which separates between Israel and Jordan is retreating by about a meter a year as the two countries divert almost 90% of the Jordan River waters that for thousands of years fed the mineral-rich sea. They are now seeking international support for a plan to pipe water north from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea to rescue the shrinking sea. Photo by Quique Kierszenbaum
