    ... br> On Friday, March 25, 2011, I flew from Abu Dhabi International Airport to Damascus International Airport to begin what would become a life-changing trip through Syria. During my flight, I was slightly nervous and very excited for two reasons. First, my flight was delayed 6 hours, so my anticipation kept growing and growing.

    ... for customers this man had won by simply being the pushiest. “Afamia Hotel? Okay, no problem, two hundred Syrian Pounds.” Whether this was a fair price or not, we nodded and climbed into the back, my legs pressed up against the driver's seat in front.

    Damascus is my last stop in Syria. A city many claim is the oldest in the world. A city that is also the highlight of people's visit to Syria, and deservedly so.
