      To a familiar rhythm of Together, United, We’ll never be defeated, possibly 100,000 men women and children chanted "Allah (God), Syrie (Syria), Bashar (The President) is all we ask!” The numbers of people grew as the day went on, a palpable excitement was in the air. The helicopters were filming the crowds and broadcasting to state television. Everytime they flew over the crowds would cheer loudly. The chanting continued and could be heard ...

      Even though we had 3 nights in Damascus, we really only had one day to do the sights. After our day trip to Lebanon, Mick and I were pretty shattered and I woke up quite grumpy the next day as my cook group was up for breakfast duties. Just one sleep in please!
