    ... my trip companions, slung on my pack and strolled down to the city center. I found yet another cheap hotel, dropped my bags and walked down to the sea.

    A wide neglected boulevard runs along the waterfront. The boulevard is seperated from the agitated sea by a fringe of palm trees, a broken chainlink fence, and a thick concrete breakwater. Nobody else is out strolling this evening, though I can't really determine why. In the wake of the storm a ...

    ... I plan to ride do have many of the characteristics of a good boreen; potholes, gravel, excellent. There are only two slight drawbacks. Firstly Syria in general and this part of Syria in particular has a serious litter problem. Ever since reaching Homs roads leading into towns are line with fly tipping and rubbish dumping.

I turn back and ride north. I spot a side road that leads up into the hills. It's worth a try. After days of straight ...

    ... someone wants to get out, or hop on). He talked another bus to taking me up the hill to the castle which was nice too. I'm finding out that having a "lost tourist" look and asking for help is a great way to be shown around, as people love to help here in Syria.

    ... its state of preservation.

    I spent about 2.5-3 hours at the site, and you could easily spend more walking around, taking your time etc and going into all the crevices (I think I hit most). You can walk inside almost all the walls, both the inner walls and the outer walls. The views from the top are also amazing, and the chapel and HQ tower were both well-preserved. There were more tourists here than ...
