David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973), Israel's first prime minister, dreamed of settling the Negev and making the desert bloom. Practicing what he preached, after he retired he moved to the Negev and became a member of Kibbutz Sde Boker and a shepherd. The state of Israel fulfilled Ben-Gurion's wish to be buried in the Negev he loved, rather than in Jerusalem like Israel's other leaders. The tomb of David and Paula Ben Gurion, surrounded by a beautiful arid-land park, offers a breathtaking view of the Tsin Valley.
