    Seriously Syria

    A travel blog entry by lisaandluke on Oct 11, 2011

    When we left Lebanon, Damascus was our first stop. Right away we realized Syria was quite a bit more conservative than the other countries. It was so insanely hot, and I had to cover up the most.

We’d just spent a couple of days in Damascus where we had come across some of the friendliest people in all of our travels. I nodded and regarded the girl now sitting beside me.
