I am very wary of blogging. I refused to keep one last time I studied abroad (Berlin, Spring-Summer 2006), thinking I would write mass emails to a targeted audience instead. Not the case. This is an effort to keep those who care up-to-date on my travels, studies, and random thoughts. This will be no diary. I envision more pictures than words. That said, because most people reading this blog have not been to Damascus, I figure this is a good opportunity for them to learn about the city and its people along with me. So expect random facts. Example : Damascus is said to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. Maybe I'll even debunk some misconceptions about the Arab world in the process. Who knows.
Yalla! (transl. "Let's go!")
