All roads lead to Damascus

Another chance encounter at the bus station
The Ummayad mosque
Town of Maalula, with a Greek Orthodox majority, perched between a rocky gorge
Anyone for some camel head?
The Old City
Vendor selling ice cold tamarind juice, delicious!
And if that isn't refreshing enough, the nation's best ice cream at Bekdash should help
Climbing the ancient walls of the Old City, a unique way to get to my hostel. They have a pulley used for heavy luggage and a walkie talkie system made from two rubber tubes.
