    ... to return to it. It’s an amazing place, the people are lovely and we were craving one more look around the souqs.



    After two weeks away it seemed that nothing much had changed in Damascus. Everyone’s going about their daily business, there are just as many traders on the streets selling everything under the sun, the roads are just as chaotic and the people are just as friendly, generous and reassuring.

    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!

    ... lovely lunch. Walk the more commercial straight souk on the way back to the hotel.

Having had no luck with the map, he tries asking, and gradually tracks it back towards our hotel.
