headed towards Bab Sharqi
where one could find buses or taxis along the main road.
This was one vehicle of interest. A flower-delivery truck?
Here is the path along the wall. I found all this charming.
It's fun to imagine who might have walked along these areas centuries ago.
What happens when the government decides to build a new highway in a city as old as Damascus?
You dig up parts of old stuff hidden in the ground, of course! You can see the new road behind us in a couple of these pictures.
We had fun checking out the old stuff. The first day we were there, we saw a group of children talking and playing in an area like this. They may have been having a picnic.
Andrew is explaining rock climbing in West Virginia here. Yep, I still remember what he was talking about when I took this picture.
I hurried out in front so I could take this picture of the guys walking towards me. I think it's rather cute seeing Andrew and Samer walking along like long-time friends.
