We have seen ancient roman cities set in the snow at Baaalbek, in the lush green fields of Apamea, and now rising up out of the desert in Palmyra. The Roman cities we have visited are all very similar at first, but also differ in the stone they're built out of, where they are located and how people used them subsequently. Each place has had a very different character and, surprisingly, we have not grown tired of seeing yet another grand colonnade.

While the ruins were amazing it's a bit of a shame that the abundance of people at the country’s No.1 tourist attraction have taken the shine off the wonderful Syrian hospitality that we have grown to love………no free pickles with the hummus at lunch today…..barely even a smile!!
