Did you enjoy your walk along the Western Wall?
We're sitting now in the main market place of Jerusalem 2000 years ago
These are original authentic tiles. Archaeologists don't fix anything.
They don't renovate. They basically clean the dirt.
This market place, which maybe Jesus himself walked upon.
Personally, I like calling it 'the original Wall Street'
As you can see behind me, the masons began carving the bedrock
The plan was to continue the street, but for some reason they stopped.
In the year 66, a great revolt breaks out. The Jews uprise against the Romans
The masons stop working. Time freezes here.
This tile that was carved, but was never placed on the street itself,
is still smooth. Nice, smooth limestone.
The street below us is tarnished, even a little bit ruined.
You can imagine people walking by, wagons, horses, merchants placing down their merchandise
Ater 2000 years of silence, this street wakes back up to life.
