The wall, the people and the bricks.

I tried to count the visible bricks of this huge wall located between the Jaffa Gate and New Gate but got lost my concentration already after 300+ counted bricks. Too many bricks, too long and high wall, too patient people who build this wall around the whole old city. Well it's not a Great Chinese Wall, but still very long. As I found on WIKI - the length of this wall is 4,018 meters. The average height is 12 meters. The average thickness is 2.5 meters. OMG.

the current wall is from the 16th century, was built by the Ottoman Empire, bcos the previous less big walls were destroyed many times by people and by earthquake.
