Czech Republic President Milos Zeman visited the Dead Sea last week, on October 9. It’s one of the deepest and hence the hottest places on the planet, but if you stay outdoors for just a couple of hours you’ll have fun. He seems to be having fun. I mean, taking off your shoes, rolling up your pants and letting the water splash against your naked feet is not part of any official protocol I’m aware of.
Hope the president doesn’t have any open sores on his exposed feet, because in that case what you’re seeing is not the smile of happiness but the twitching of agony.
