For those of you who thought that Wi-Fi Internet access and donkeys don't mix, think again. A new initiative in the southern Galilee town of Hoshaya will allow people riding donkeys to enjoy wireless Internet access.
Hoshaya, which operates the Kfar Kedem recreational attraction (which simulates life in ancient Galilee), will now propel itself into the modern age and allow visitors to check their email and post photos on their Facebook pages while riding donkeys.
Kfar Kedem site manager Menachem Goldberg decided to equip each donkey with a wireless router, similar to the ones used on public buses. "We have 30 donkeys in our town and we have fitted five with wireless Internet. We will consider whether to equip more as time goes on," Goldberg said.
