Jerusalem - Old City Wall

I was amazed that at one time people traveled to the mountainous region of Jerusalem without cars. Not that our car was a jewel. It was well traveled and the stereo would turn on untouched at different volume levels.

Even with a population of 500,000 Jerusalem has a small town feel of Christians, Jews and Muslims living in harmony, encouraged to do so by a visible police force and military presence. On a hill above the city, a thirty-foot wall surrounds the historic part of the city, Old Jerusalem. The wall surrounds a four-kilometer area that is the highest elevation in the region. Excavations in the area uncovered more than ten civilizations that this site served as the religious center.
