    I visited the site and Rhia is 100% right. Try to avoid those guys on the motor bikes.. You don't want to tamper with the Government in Syria and do illegal things.

    The Krak has always been one of my dream destinations... It's a pity to U have crowds there too! Syrian chocolate? I would have never thought of that, LOL

    An amazing page, from the choccie croissants, the water wheel, the beehive homes to the Bedouins' lives changing. Excellent.
