Lost in Translation

... a period of him repeating the phrase then laughing again. Here in Damascus it is a common greeting.

In the end I am reminded of my buddy Matt from Boston, who was a classmate of mine for two years in Kamloops. As our final semester came to a close it was becoming obvious that Matt's Boston drawl had been replaced by the sing-songy rhythm of Canadian English- he even finished many of his statements with the distinctly Canadian 'eh.'

Ahmadinajad had just recently visited so there were many billboards with his picture welcoming him to Hezbollah territory... Ayatollah Komeini was also easy to spot, as were typically Iranian savings boxes...

My visit to Syria is now over, I am off to Amman in the morning.

... does indeed gaze down at you from every street corner. The Assads have done nothing for the people of Syria, save keeping it insular and away from the world's glare. Their presence is felt for the tourist too, in the way that your passport is required for anything: to use the internet, to buy a train or bus ticket, to check into a hotel.
