what a wonderful country:
no Coca Cola and McDonald's available
but try the local Ugarit Cola: delicious

I have seen Muslim people praying in a Christian monastery, I have seen Christians praying in mosques. I saw no friction between the two religions, no prejudices, no misunderstandings.

We all have to learn from you, Syria.


wonderful welcoming people
buzzing cities and colourful souqs
history and archaeology all over

    Oh I see what you mean... we really lucked out with the weather overall, except in Palmyra (snow flurries!) and Krak (torrential rain, then fog!).

    I had no idea what to expect when first coming to your page on Syria--such striking antiquities! I also liked your tip on crossing the street...slowly with your fingers crossed!

    Thank you for writing up such detailed information on Syria. It made me feel much more confident about going there alone.

    I liked Al-Amra cigarettes! They are longer than the regular ones and not bad at all.
