    ... 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. Second, the days leading up to my trip brought regular news about the conflicts that ...

    ... of taking private lessons in the local dialect. I considered lots of factors before jumping ship, but to be honest, once the idea popped into my head, it became the obvious choice.

    More or less as soon as we stepped through the gate we found ourselves inside the bustling Al-Hamidiyah Souq. It was packed with people all pushing their way to make any headway through the wide bazaar. ...

    ... city has been severely stunted by the heat. And this isn't just any heat, this is a heat wave, this is Saudi heat, not Syrian. Temperatures of 45, 46... 47 have become normal. The other day it (apparently) peaked at 52 (in the sun), at which point I think I became delusional. Getting into a car during this heat has to be one of the most testing activities. Inside the car the temperature is immense. It's suffocatingly hot. It's dangerous driving, as the black steering wheel becomes too ...
