... group.We traveled with Ali and his merchants through a caravan and camels. During this time period the use of camel and caravans were the most desirable way to get around for trade or transportation but also by boat in the Indian Ocean Trade routes. At the time it was cheaper to utilize camels to carry most of the goods across long distances. Traveling to through the Middle East proved to be difficult due to hot, arid desert and piercing rays of the sun. I felt ...

I'm really glad I came but don't think I'll be hurrying back anytime soon.

Bye bye Syria!

Today, we are crossing the border to Syria. We thought about taking a bus first but we were advised to take a shared taxi if we don't have a visa yet because the bus company probably refuse you if we don't have a visa to Syria. We took a taxi to where shared taxi companies are located in town (2JD) and a driver dropped us at one of those companies. (There are several companies but I presume they offer more or less the same price) ...
