Beirut to Damascus is a short three hour bus ride. Unless you're American. We waited five hours at the border before getting approved for a visa but the wait was well worth it. Damascus is amazing! It feels much more Middle Eastern than Beirut with its winding alleys and crowded markets and calls to prayer. It also has some of the best Middle Eastern food I've ever had. Pictures and stories to come in a few days!


  1. You best be back by Sunday night to talk - now that I've finally caught up, I have so many questions. Unless you're too cool for me now that you've MET THE POPE.

    I guess we've spoken since then though so probably not.

  2. p.s. I came up with one more title for Baltimore - "Balti-lock-your-door" :)
