Biblical tourist park puts Wi-Fi on donkeys
What would Jesus have tweeted?
The world may never know because there was no Wi-Fi on the donkeys he rode 2,000 years ago. But a biblical tourist park in Israel is now changing all that.
Visitors to Northern Israel’s Kfar Kedem can now post Instagram photos of themselves in biblical robes and headdresses because the donkeys there have Wi-Fi routers fastened around their necks, according to The Associated Press.
“You take some pictures, you want to change your picture on Facebook — you can do it,” park manager Menachem Goldberg told the AP.
New York native Peter Scherr and his family brought their smartphones and iPads along for a ride on donkeys through the ancient hills of the Galilee.
“It has been used as a working animal for 5,000 years,” Scherr said, dressed in biblical while reading Wikipedia on his iPad. “There are more than 40 million donkeys in the world. That’s a lot of donkeys!”
“I don’t miss any news,” Scherr added. “I send pictures back to my family while I’m having fun on the donkeys.”
