    ... by Romans, by Muslims and eventually the Mongols in 1300AD. From this point onwards, Palmyra was consigned to oblivion in the desert.

    The first evening was spent meeting some of Marias friends, Tamur and family and dining in his restaurant (in the Lonely Planet).

    ... nephews operate the hotel and souvenier shop across the road is an education.

    I return to the camp for my evening meal. It is as promised. Unfortunately the evening is marred by the presence of one of the loudest Americans I have ever come across (nothing personal Mark, he could have been Irish) whose speciality is boring people with tales of cars, engines, reboring (no pun intended but true).

    After seeing the tombs, we had picked up the rest of the group and set on our way to Damascus, it felt kind of surreal that this trip was ending and it felt that we were only getting to see a few of the many sites Syria has to offer.
