The Meal, The View
Two dishes notable in the picnic: the tupperware container is shakshuka, eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce. Good hot or cold, here at ambient temperature, about 70 degrees F. The tupperware container is a chocolate spread reminiscent of frosting. It's a kid's food, which then gets eaten as comfort food in the army, and I've been told many extra pounds are gained by new recruits as a result. The picture, from the edge of Mizpe Ramon crater (not actually a crater) shows the view.
Two details noticeable in the picture: the man in black sitting on the cliff, and the graffito of a naked woman on the picnic table. I swear I didn't notice it until this instant.
