      A 6hr bus journey to Damascus (Damask in Syrian).

      Stepping off the bus at the bus station a few kilometers outside of town I was surrounded by taxi drivers wanting my business. 600SYP shouted one driver. Way too high as I know that it should only be around 150SYP ($3). So I offered 100SYP as a start to the bargaining process. No takers at the moment.

      "Travel is at its most rewarding when it ceases to be about reaching a destination and becomes indistinguishable from living your life." -Paul Theroux

      As my time here is coming to a close I'm going about the city making sure to tick off the 'must see' boxes.
