    ... comfort as a customer is not too high on the priority list, it seems. However, they're very helpful, I must stay. By all means, don't take my advice as I'm now into my third month on this trip so I've become a bit jaded. If you want the real Middle Eastern experience, this is it. Make your own mind up about the current political situation before coming here though. Just don't expect a smile.

    ... are one thing, reality and human ingenuity another. It's very easy to access any banned website through a proxy server so in all the internet cafes, coffee shops or hostels you'll see Syrians wasting away as much time on Facebook as denizens of any western country.

    ... dad to buying us lots of food and ice cream. mmmm. Louis had a hand basket that he pulled around on wheels and I took lots of picks of weird foreign food marketing. Photos to come.
    Came home, ate dinner of corn pasta, italian brie and okanagan wine, followed by a game of scrabble and cooked down fruits and ice cream for desert. A great day with the family in Damascus. And, once again, I'm full. ...
