Some of us are history nerds, others are just curios, and the rest of us travellers - well, we just love adventure, amirite? So Hezekiah's tunnels satisfies all those cravings, but I'm sure for people not in any of the above categories you'll still find it a fairly awesome way to spend an afternoon in Jerusalem. We started off with a City of David Tour which gave us a great perspective of where exactly we were standing in relation to Jerusalem's old City, both ancient and less-ancient (still Old, though.) The tunnels were, let's not lie, the coolest part. Nothing like wading through knee-deep water with only flip-flops between your toes and the ancient stone, with just a tiny flashlight illuminating the ancient tunnels in front of you. Need I say, ancient, again? Just imagining the people of Judea walking these tunnels thousands of years ago to get water from outside the city was enough to get the history-nerd blood racing, but the adventurers were also pretty stoked to see the bowels of the ancient city from this perspective. Even on a freezing and rainy day, this rates as seriously supercool. And not just literally.
