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
.

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