    The second you enter any place for the first time, you are forced to get a first impression of that place. I believe first impressions are big discoveries made in a small instance, so they are very meaningful.

    Its contrast is found just outside the old city - the new city. Filled with young fashionable Syrians (my desire of practical over pretty clothing definitely sticks out here).

    ... up to the start of the steep streets, and the American Embassy, which has extremely heavy security, including locals in various uniforms, expat heavy hitters, all with sub-machine guns, and a group of plain clothes locals sitting on the grass beside the road trying to get a gun going. We assumed they were the goodies, and carried on up the hill to a big roundabout, with a functioning fountain. Most of the fountains here seem to be functioning, which ...
