my first Syrian stop... my first highlight... my first love
Palmyra is dark grey plumby skies... then the mists opened,
revealing ancient temples and mysterious funerary tombs. Enchanting!
Palmyra is Khaled, my first Syrian friend, met on a chilly december night.
Great chai, music and conversation to warn me up


a laid back unassuming town
amazing ruins of a roman city
incredible oranted temples
an unexpected valley of the tombs


the Temple of Bel
ruins along the Colonnade
stone carvings
the Valley of the Tombs

    That tablet in the picture is not a mysterious language - it is Hebrew!
