First Thursday

I visited the Tower of David today. It has a good reputation because I has a museum of history of the city inside, since its creation until ‘now’.

Inside the museum there are various interesting things. The history of the city is divided into various rooms, each one covering a period of that history, with placards, drawings, videos… going through the various rooms following a route designed to look like a game of clues among the stones and ramparts.A film is also shown which has left me with the impression Jerusalem was built in this spot just because some one saw a bunch of stones and said, “hey, let’s built something with these stones right here”. The worst of the film is the end – where it states that Jerusalem is nowadays the capital of Israel. Sigh.
