... like a warm welcome. No more suspicion. No more tension. When I asked how much a visa would be if I stayed for a few weeks, the officer said, "I have an uncle in Sydney. For you? Free. You can stay for three months. Oh - and welcome to Lebanon". Within minutes our taxi continued over the mountains of Lebanon and then, there it was.

From filming in monasteries around Damascus on the first day, we got into filming in Damascus itself for the next 3 days.

It's hard not to feel like a king after such a treatment and thankfully the cost doesn't diminish this euphoria. The whole treatment costs 320SP ($7).

... the old city. We visited the Umayyed mosque ((1st c. AD and one of the holiest in the Muslim world), which is both enormous and beautiful. The arcade at one end of the marble courtyard is covered in exquisite gold mosaics as is the entrance to the prayer hall. Men and women are separated inside the mosque by a velvet cordon, where they pray and pass before the (purported) tomb of John the Baptist (also a prophet in the Muslim world). We made our ...
