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!
