Some Quick Video

This is the video post. Just two videos. The first is the Tower of David - which was actually built by Herod, then restored and added onto later. This is from outside the Old City Wall and also shows a lot of the wall.

The second video is a main entry point into the Old City and my hotel is less than 50 yards from this gate. It is the Jaffa Gate as well as part of the wall. They ended up knocking down part of the wall to add an entry for larger vehicles to get through. This happened during the time of Turkish domination of the area. Just inside the gateway you see there was someone selling fresh cherries, then two steps further there was another person selling fresh bread. FYI - the food at our hotel has been great. I have enjoyed every meal so far.
