  • Visitite Syria in 2007 and feel deeply that they have had and have to pass the people left there, which have had to move. My experience was wonderful the people were very friendly, helpful, generous. And to say the impressive Citadel and the market was so authentic that it seemed that had been quedao stopped in time, covered, with the streets of developed land and jobs...
