...more days merging and passing, spent enjoying, wandering, eating, drinking, smoking, laughing and sleeping.

The beauty of travelling without time constraints. Time to enjoy and submerge into the surrounding, the people, the culture and the way of life. Although not necessarily captured within photographs, living a location over time is the best way to start to understand ...

... use of the government letter allowing him to do everything he wants... I just felt embarrassed.

I had some scenes at the Umayyad mosque and we also filmed our 'hotel check-in'. Most of my scenes revolve around me looking at something, appearing to be amazed and snapping a shot.
