    ... observed the other Syrian observers calmly watching what was happening, and decided I should do the same. I even got up close and took photos!

From stepping outside the madness, to watch it.

    ... letting us see the full extent of the city, and also the landmarks of the Old City. Took photos, but the air was pretty hazy, so don't expect too much from them.

    On the way back down we saw a fair bit of the new part of the city before hitting the traffic jams around the Citadel. Although we thought we had a price of 30SYP, we were prepared to pay 100, and thought at first our driver was saying "too much". Not so, he wanted 500, which is ...
