    ... quarter of the old town of Damascus and walking distance from some of the best souks on the planet. Unlike the souks of Marrakech, here people go about their business without hassling tourists. Remember, this is Syria in the midst of a political crisis so the only tourists were the hardcore types. I had the whole city to myself. And as for the protests? I only saw those on TV. Walking around the old part of Damascus was pleasant and although the people were strangely ...

    ... those details. So it is nice to know that exemptions to the rule exist for health reasons and that the muslim contingent of this country recognises those whom are not of that faith. I've also been told that it is illegal to eat in public in Jordan during Ramadan, however you can purchase food (however hard it may be to find).

    ... there by bus, which took ca 4 hours. Two Swedish girls had the same way so we booked a nicely decorated top floor 4 bed room with a balcony.
