Where in the World is Gary? #4

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#3) is Kansas City, Missouri, USA

Where in the World is Gary? #4

Latitude — 31º 30′ North

Longitude — 35º 30′ East

This place lies 1400 feet (427 m) below sea level and is the Earth’s lowest elevation on land. Salts and muds from here are used in cosmetics. The water here is almost 10 times saltier than the oceans. Gary in the Dead Sea

This place is hot (up to 108º F, 42º C) in summer but UV rays are effectively filtered so there is less danger from sunburn.
