... a 5 am start to, came back to report a sand storm and they couldn't see thing! It was pretty well cleared up by the time we got up at 8 or so. My first job of the day was to replace the fuel filter on the van which was not a difficult job, but a bit messy with the inevitable spillage. We won’t know if this solves the stalling problem until we hit the highway tomorrow.
Then we rode around to the entrance to the Temple of Bel, which is the big complex right next to ...
Tombs of Ellabel and his three brothers
The Tower Tombs
Were extremely busy as they are only open at certain times of the day and therefore when ever you go you will find hordes of people hoping to have a glimpse. I personally didn't look inside the Tower Tombs due to the amount of people waiting to go in but if you get there at 8am I'm sure you will be one of the first to see it and also it will be a lot cooler than mid morning or afternoon.
... Triumph, the Amphitheater, the Baths, the Straight Street, the Congress Council and the Cemeteries
The destiny of the great kingdom of Palmyra was no better than that of its queen; the city fell prey to looting and destruction. Archaeologists are still working on excavations there in order to uncover queen's palace, which was destroyed by Romans and replaced by a military camp.
