Just posting these from my 2008 trip, in light of the current climate.  I found the Syrians that I met to be educated, Pro-American and good conversationalists.  Women walked the streets of Aleppo, some covered in abayas and some in bedazzled Western-style jeans.  I loved playing ball with the kids and I loved 103F dry heat, sincerely.  Food was delicious, I still have hummus and warm pita for breakfast, a perfect compliment to strong coffee.

Having said that, Syria’s human rights situation is reported to be among the worst in the world.  I hope that this struggle leaves them with more rather than less.
