  • Damascus - 叙利亚的首都其实就城市发展来说,Damascus似乎有些寒碜。马路很挤,楼房很矮,交通糟的不可形容。 但是城市中间的清真寺大教堂,却是我们所见最叹为观止的! 进去前先换衣服。女生穿长袍,遮住头发和身体的所有部位。男生如果路小腿的得穿上长袍!看我们的装扮! 男生们显得那么的娇柔!(吐!) 我站在大理石地板的寺庙的露天广场。阳光照射下,地面有点烫。但是却一尘不染。金色 Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 28, 2009
  • 沙漠之国 - Palmyra我们见证了夕阳和朝阳下的沙漠之国。伫立在沙漠中的雄伟的柱子不时地提醒我们,这里曾经一度繁荣辉煌过。就像一个绝色的美人,就算容颜去了,在皱纹下还隐藏着曾经的沉鱼落雁! 落日,我们就在古城旁边露营。 [img=https://photos Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 27, 2009
  • 古堡,又见古堡 - Crac De Chevarlier这次是Crac De Chevarlier! 山洞停上透下一缕光 姐姐抱着妹妹走上山坡 Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 25, 2009
  • Aleppo Citadel - Aleppo 的古城堡我们两人都对城堡,教堂,博物馆没有什么兴趣。但是既然到了,如果不进去又说不过去,总算到此一游过。所以还是雁过留声吧!(顺便说一句,拿isic卡买门票真是便宜,大概就人民币1块钱) 进门的桥!就像北京的长城,天安门,这个应该是叙利亚的标志物吧,被印在硬币上! [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/211584/20090729_ Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 25, 2009
  • 长裙飘飘的男生刚入境不久,导游告诉我们这条是罗马大道。chris还算正常。 但是却娱乐了当地的孩子们一把。 入乡随俗,住了一个晚上之后,chris也秉承了当地男人的衣着习惯,穿起了长袍。 [img=https://photos.travellersp Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 30, 2009
  • 叙利亚 - 天使之国正当我们开始对土耳其的旅游小镇开始感觉疲乏的时候(我们实在感冒满是欧洲游人的土耳其的海滨旅游城市),大黄终于要开始向叙利亚进发了。 同行的团友们在海关大买伏特加和啤酒,因为穆斯林的习俗是不提倡饮酒的,所以我们只能自给自足。领队提醒我们说,叙利亚是一个相对保守的国家,所以我们穿着得相对保守。女生们收拾起了吊带和超短裙(裤),换上了相对“体面”的服装。因为以色列从叙利亚和约旦“强抢”了很多的土地,所以这个国家的外交政策非常的强硬。所有游人,只要护照上有以色列的签证就不得入境。正应为这个规定,入境处会仔细 Posted by suevasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 30, 2009
  • DamascusOur impression of Damascus may be a bit jaded by the heat and circumstance. We stayed at a campsite 4km out of town for 3 nights. The campsite was torn down, so we stayed in a much less fancy campsite Posted by chrisvasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 29, 2009
  • Citadel in Aleppo and Crac de ChevaliersThe citadel in Aleppo is amazing, a huge fortress that would be close to unattackable (in fact it was never breached, just surrendered after the rest of the city fell). [img=https://p Posted by chrisvasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 25, 2009
  • Palmyra ruinsThe ruins of Palmyra were awesome, it was one of the earlier capitals of one of the empires about 2000 years ago (Byzantine maybe...). However we had already been to a bunch of ruins, so we only had the Posted by chrisvasil in Overland for 8 Months | Jul 26, 2009
  • Crac des Chevaliers - SyriaWhile in Syria, four of us from the hostel went to see Crac des Chevaliers, the most famous and intact of the crusader castles.

  • Trip to Damascus - Part 2Old City Damascus is just excellent. Little mazes of streets with sweets and crafty shops. Secret brightly lit courtyards, often hidden behind nondescript doors: Uh, descript doors: Posted by jenofear in Jen's Blog | Apr 2, 2009

  • Touring Marqab, Salah Ed-Din, and ApameaI did a day trip to Marqab & Salah Ed-Din, two crusader castles, as well as Apamea. To be honest, I didn't expect much. Ruins start to look the same to me after a while (I'm so low-society)...and Posted by jenofear in Jen's Blog | Mar 27, 2008
