    ... that the border could close and we would be stuck in Syria. Worse still. I would be stuck at the border with a whinging English guy, complaining about everything that is wrong with this part of the world without for one second realising that part of the problem is his insensitivity towards this region and his total disinterest in the language. If you don't even know how to say thank you in the local language - really, don't travel.

    From filming in monasteries around Damascus on the first day, we got into filming in Damascus itself for the next 3 days. Wednesday’s shots were all around the old city walls, re-enacting some ancient scenes.

    ... to the mosque. Eventually they morphed into institutions unto themselves, and occasionally into monumental structural complexes. As important social centers, they were built in almost every Ottoman city. In Damascus I am aware of at least half a dozen, though the actual number in the city is anyone's guess. As the entrance is often only written in Arabic, my limited ability to read the lacy script has proved useful in seeking out ...

    ... sugary, chewy nut based candies, dried apricot leathers.
    -Nuts: so many nuts-pistachios, peanuts, squash seeds (which all come at the beginning of every meal), beer nuts, corn nuts, rice cracker mixes, spiced nuts-you name it.

    It seems that in this country, its lots of salt or lots of sugar. Mint tea is so sweet, as are fresh juices and coffee; cheeses are so salty, its insane, But I guess in this heat, you loose so many salts you need to ...
