    Where where the walled cities when Yehoshua went in?

    It was said that even in Prague and  Bagdad they lien the megilla  on both days because there either was or likely was a wall around those cities already in  the  times of Yehoshua.  Other cities in  Eretz Yisroel as well.

      Even before the  great wall of China there were walled cities in v China at the time of Yehoshua.  Ditto for cities in the Mayan civilization then. 

    Being that there are yidden and  shluchim, or at least Jewish backpackers everywhere imaginable these days (world's biggest seder about 1500 Israelis in Katmandu Nepal served shmura matza and wine by shluchim) maybe those yidden who  find themselves in  these places in  China and Mexico and elsewhere should look into it!
