Syria - Don't Pay Attention To The Travel Warnings!

Beautiful Syria. Don't listen to your government, this country is not full of terrorists but warm hearted, generous people and picturesque countryside.
Loaded donkey
The black sands of Wadi Quandil
Book seller at the bus station
Goat shepherds getting gas
Eating like a Lord in Lattakia
Carpet weaver
Another donkey on the pavement
Young girls I met at the mosque, note the designer abeyya!
Butchers deep inside the souq The city of Aleppo as seen from the citadel
The Syrian border from the Turkish side. Looks like an easy hurdle but I took the easy route and crossed the frontier in legal fashion. Well, almost legal - lucky I didn't get that Israeli passport stamp!
