Donkeys Come Wi-Fi Equipped at Tourist Attraction in Israel

A tourist attraction in lower Galilee that seeks to recreate daily life as it was in ancient Israel recently got a technological upgrade when it began putting Wi-Fi hotspots around the necks of donkeys so tourists can have access to the Internet.

"We're the only place in the world that will give the opportunity to surf the Internet when riding a donkey," Menachem Goldberg of Kfar Kedem told The Christian Post from Israel on Thursday.
The Kfar Kedem park is located in the hills of Galilee in view of the city of Nazareth, and offers tourists the opportunity to wear the same clothes, make the same foods and ride the same animals as did those who lived in ancient times.
According to the attraction's website, "Kfar Kedem creates a holistic experience using all your senses ... connecting these tangible experiences with the values and spirit of the ages from the time of the Bible and the Mishnah, that are still part of our lives today."
Now, because the experience also includes an Internet connection, tourists can also share the experience with their friends and family at home.
If someone "wants to change his profile on Facebook, for example, in the middle of the riding, now we give the opportunity to do it," explained Goldberg.
