From Aleppo to Hama, 140km, took no time at all. Such a relief to be on level road again after Turkey. Hama is perhaps a bit greener and a bit cleaner than other Syrian towns, and is interesting for its 'norias' or big waterwheels that have been used to irrigate the area for many centuries. Ultimately, it's a town with something old, a bit of green and not much else Apparently I peddled all this way to see the Syrian version of Tonbridge.
