|Tower of David.|
As mentioned, we'll be going to the Tower of David Museum and Light Show this evening. As luck would have it our lodgings are just across the lane from the Tower of David. It was originally built in the 2nd Century B.C.E. to strengthen a weakness in the Old City defenses. To further bolster the defenses, the fortress even includes a "moat".

The light show is a visual and musical representation of Old City history. The inside of the Tower of David is a large space with the inside of the walls and towers surrounding the interior. The light-show consists of an audio-visual presentation of the history of Jerusalem. It's interesting, and beautiful, how the show uses the interior of the walls as the "screen". The show is made in such a way that some of the actual windows, arches and stair-cases are integrated into the film presentation. It very unique and not something I've seen before. The accompanying music is beautiful.

Tomorrow will be our last full day in Jerusalem. We'll be heading to Tel Aviv on Saturday followed by a stop-over in Haifa and visits to other cities and sites in Northern Israel.
