Searching for Jerusalem’s hidden bits

Everyone knows there is lots of tunnels under the old city, from various different eras.  But did you know there’s another hidden way to get around the old city?

Try looking up.

But how to get up onto the roof tops?

Well last year I saw these steps, at first I thought it was just a person’s private stairway to their house, but after some other foreign people went up, I decided to take a look.  If you are in town and want to see for yourself, do a search for the street name on google maps.

Here you walk quite a way around on the roof tops, often bordering onto people’s yards.   Look to the left of the tall aerial and the concrete dome thing and you might be able to see a police kiosk, some kind of check point.   I had to leave to get to my church service, but I will look at this in more detail another day.

In someways just like the Bourne Ultimatum film where Jason Bourne goes leaping over a city in Morocco, It could be fun to run along and hide amongst all those funny balconies, steps and passageways up on these roofs.
