    I’m sure this is gonna be an interesting blog. I’m a student as well and I hope I’ll visit Damasco in July, so I’ll be following your blog. I hope you are going to help me to understand what I’m going to see.

    Good luck, we’ll probably meet in the comments 🙂

    Do you have rss?

      Thanks zik, kind words indeed.

      Thought I had rss – is there no link next to my url?

      Glad to hear you’re coming to Damascus. You’ll have a wonderful time I’m sure.

    Just wanted to let you know I came across your blog and really enjoy it! I blog about life in Syria as well (www.whysosyria.com). I’ve actually crossed linked to your blog since I think it’s something my readers would be interested in.
