... country. For a Japanese passport holder it was $13, for a European Union passport holder about $35 and for an Australian - a whopping $108 because apparently, that's how much an Australian visa costs.

Oh well, who am I to argue. Although I don't know of any Australians who get a Syrian visa with the intention of settling in the country and I can only imagine that all of them, like me, will end up parting with much more than $108 while in Syria, as opposed to ...

The city that has always been and always will be, was to be the our experience for the day. We drove into Damascus and stopped just shy of the heart of the city, a few blocks from the Citadel.
