Damascus -- Random Shots

This week I have walked several times at dusk. It wouldn't necessarily start off that way, but I think we all know how it's light and then gradually "the sun goes down" and it gets dusky. Anyway, I've noticed three times recently how that time of day reminds me of Damascus. I guess it's because we walked a lot and it was winter so the days were shorter. We tended to walk quite a bit in the evenings. In this post I've included 3 pictures of Damascus at night. These particular shots were taken near the Umayyad mosque. Also this post just has some random shots of various places around Damascus.

Here with are with the President's
photo in the background. See it under the flags?

I like Damascus at night.

Hey! There's a CRV in that last picture. :-)

That library is beautiful. Do you have any interior shots of it?
