A Galilean version of Colonial Williamsburg is taking the leap from the First Century to the 21 Century.
The northern town of Hoshaya is planning on installing WiFi Internet access on the donkeys it uses as part of its Talmudic-era amusement village, Kfar Kedem, Israel Hayom reported on Monday.
Kfar Kedem, or Village of Yore, offers visitors a reenactment of Judean life from the First and Second centuries of the common era, including period dress, rustic buildings and donkey rides. In order to let visitors upload photos and send emails about their experience in real time, park manager Menachem Goldberg decided to offer wireless Internet on the asses.
“Our village has 30 donkeys, and we’ve equipped the first five with wireless routers that are attached to the donkey’s body,” Goldberg said. “In the future we’ll consider equipping all of the donkeys with the necessary apparatuses as necessary.”
