Bolstered by our positive experience in Turkey, we continued on to Syria.
Some members of our family were worried that we wouldn’t be welcomed there, but they didn’t need to fret so much. Syria turned out to be nearly the friendliest country on our tour, only slightly overshadowed by the kindness we found later in Iran.
And the food! Simply fabulous, from falafels to hearty soups, freshly roasted chicken and Lebanese red wine, we ate and drank well in Syria, on the slimmest of budgets.
