      ... what to do. I had access to foreign TV channels in my room which was strange but apparently the government can't prohibit that. So I was able to see the protests unfolding from the eyes of CNN and BBC, even though their journalists were banned from entering Syria. The local TV channels showed a different side to the violence and the focus was on their heroic soldiers killed in battle against terrorists. Who to believe?
