The swing of things

A travel blog entry by jmckerricher on Dec 14, 2010

It is a pure joy to arrive in a city unannounced with no preconceptions, no plans, and no reservations. Pressed against the window of my taxi, I waved good-bye to another border and watched the sun sink into the sea, turning the whole sky red in its wake, then fade with imperceptible slowness. We drove on for some time then the driver pulled off the road and came to a stop in front of a small souq. "Tartus" he claimed. I paid him and thanked him, waved ...

Cracking Great Castle!

... there were a couple of Christian monasteries in the area.

Much to our surprise, we found Krac des Chevaliers rather easily. Krac (Kurdish name for castle) des Chevaliers (of the Crusaders) is a classic castle of the middle ages… much different from the other ruins we have been seeing here, as it is newer by a thousand years. It was built first in about 1100 by a Kurdish sultan, and then taken and enlarged by the Crusaders. The Crusaders then abandoned it about 75 ...

It is the hottest day yet at 40C.

In the cool of the evening I join Tartusians in their hundreds having a paseo on the promenade and watch the sun set over the ...

I follow him to his apartment and I'm introduced to his wife. They are Syrian Orthodox Christians. He is a retired geography teacher. He is full of questions. Not like Cilla's

"What's your name and where do you come from?"

but a fusillade of detailed questions about me, my life, my family, my religion, my finances and yet none of it seems intrusive just genuine interest. The coffee is delicious. We spend perhaps ...

Two Castles and a Bus

Today I went to two more castles. The first is Marqab, which is right on the coast of the Mediterranean Ocean. The second is Safita, today only one tower left and it houses a Greek Orthodox church.

Took a minibus up to Marqab-- today I'm avoiding taxis for the long haul trips. A minibus costs about 50 cents, so it's the much better deal. A guy on the bus helped me out, getting me off the bus at the right stop (the bus runs a rout and ...
