Home from Damascus!

On Saturday we left North Carolina to travel to Damascus. Did we go all the way to Syria? They say a picture is worth a thousand words so let's examine the evidence with just these four pictures (click to enlarge photos.)

A bed and breakfast in downtown Damascus


The road near the place we stayed
Main Street as seen from above
Here's a big clue!
You were right! We never left the country! What tipped you off? The lack of crowds in the street?  No minarets showing? The American flags in the first two pictures?   :-)

I was gonna say the lack of desert in the first pic, actually. :)

Lat said...

Haha! She's a very Americanized landscape! Wish you had a splendid weekend there! The place looks cool!
Thank you for sharing!

Susanne said...

Amber, oh you are so smart!

Lat, yes, it was fun and a neat place to visit that not too far from home. :)

Still looks like *beautiful* country even if it's not the same Damascus as before. :)

Susanne said...

Carmen, oh you know America is beautiful! But I do miss my Syrian friends. :)
