Perfect Palmyra

... was so loud I could barely hear what Yin was trying to say to me when he wanted to engage in chit-chat. Being thrown into another desert wasn’t a huge perk but if there’s one thing I do like about it, it’s the sights.

... dusty concrete block dwellings, and a little rough around the edges. We did go into the recommended museum which had a collection of various sculptural bits, coins, tools, pottery, fabric remnants and glassware from pre-Roman and Roman times. Then to a little roadside restaurant for Falafel and Baba Ganoush for lunch. By now we were back into shirtsleeves as it was comfortably warm.

... After the tombs, we drove on the Temple of Bel, at the far end of the famous colonnade near the Victory Arch. This enormous temple comprised an enclosed central altar area and two raised platforms facing one another, each with sculpted ceilings; one of busts depicting the seasons with all the signs of the zodiac around them; the other more simply decorative.
