Syria and Jordan Gallery

My time in Syria was brief, as part of a single combined trip with Jordan. The UK had no diplomatic relations with the country at the time and it was regarded as a pariah state. Quite the opposite of what we found, a country full of antiquity and tradition, of hospitality and decency toward strangers.

People would walk across the street to say ‘welcome to my country’. How I lament the harm that has befallen Syria, once a hub of trade in the then-known world, now a pawn of global powers.
