Middle East Trip - Syria - Palmyra

New Year’s Eve ended with Palmyra. We arrived late because of a case of “frozen gas” in Resafa (read: no gas), but seeing the lights on the ruins in Palmyra was excellent. I must say that although the ruins in Palmyra were vastly more impressive than Resafa, Palmyra didn’t have that magic for me. It must’ve been the snow, or lack thereof! We ended the year drinking dodgy Lebanese champagne in a Bedouin tent and had camel steaks for dinner. Brilliant, up until the gastro everyone had the next day!
