Me in Aleppo

The guy who ran my hotel in Latakia and his nephew
This was a really nice coffeeshop in Latakia--it looked onto the sea
On the Med in Latakia
Heading out to an island off Latakia

Me on the Crac
A street in the village

On the way back to Latakia from the Crac I visited a couple of villages


While walking through one of these villages, I met a family sitting in front of their house

The family had been outside smoking a nargile and started chatting with me in French

Me taking a hit off the nargile

Back in Latakia at a restaurant--this was either the owner or the manager

Hitting the beach after a long day
The Mediterranean
On the road to Hama
Hama is famous for its water wheels
Finally in Damascus--the big city
People buying and selling in Damascus
In the souk in Damascus

This is Marmula--a village close to Damascus where some people still speak Aramaic (not that I would have understood the difference)

From Syria I traveled by shared taxi to Amman, Jordan. I have no photos of Amman, but I do have this shot of the Dead Sea, which I visited on a day trip.


From Amman I took a bus to the West Bank, then caught another bus which took me to Jerusalem.

The al-Asqua Mosque in Jerusalem
