    Surviving Syria

    ... This guy knew everyone on both sides of the border and after a lot of friendly arguing and persuading, they agreed to look into my "circumstances". This meant making a few calls to Damascus just to check that I wasn't a journalist. In the meantime I was ordered over to the visa counter to pay for the visa. This didn't mean I was in. It just meant, "we don't work for free". Now, the amount of the visa depends on where you're from and the amount a Syrian has to pay to ...

    ... teenage boy brings our coffee then goes back to dilly-dallying.

    The Middle Eat so far feels very safe. Safer in fact than any other country I have been to, not just on this trip. I am including Morocco in this observation. I am excluding the traffic on the roads. In Beirut alone, I narrowly escaped being hit by a motor cycle twice.

    Off to Jordan next to hopefully continue feeling safe :) I am super excited as Jordan is the #2 country on my bucket list.

    ... them of a great opportunity to do so.
    As a half day trip I visited Maalula, a village north of Damascus. Built on a hill side and housing some fine church, monastery and a short trail through a gorge, it was a nice escape from the capital’s bustle, although in general Damascus is far behind other big cities in terms of congestion.

    ... these people are and its not at all what the media has shown this place to be. Out of all the wonderful countries we have visited so far, this has been the biggest surprise and our favorite place as far as the people are concerned.

We will definitely return to this wonderful city!
