... arch gate (i have also included a shockingly good drawing of this) where I ran into some of old friends there who were also visiting the new gate. They told me that they have become Bedouin caravan traders, trading across the Sahara desert from the African Nations to Europe and the Arab nations.

... Syria, it has a fabulously decadent feel to it, with its dusty old architecture and wonderful 'beits' (old Damascene houses, built around a central courtyard) , the enormous souq, which seems to endlessly meander throughout the city, and of course the mosques and churches, which play such an important part of the city.
