Last week, while guiding in the City of David, I had the pleasure of running into a man who has actually excavated the site, Ronny Reich. In collaboration with Eli Shukron, Ronny identified the Pool of Siloam, the street leading to the Second Temple, and additional elements of Warren's Shaft, helping to solve the mystery of ancient Jerusalem's water supply. I'm glad to say that he agreed with everything I told my tourists!
I always like to keep everyone posted with my own travels. At the end of June I had a cousin's wedding in Istanbul, followed by a week in the village of Bezirgan, in the mountains above the Turqoise Coast. We hiked, ate delicious food, and drank a lot of tea. Now I'm back and ready for a very busy month of guiding in August!
