A Bedouin wonders while I do the same Syria is a fascinating country.  For two years I lived there  and taught in an American School.  No matter how many times people ask me what it was like I always  pause before I answer.  I breathe out and think to myself "Where to begin?"  

For Syria I have not tried to tie the pictures into the East West theme or even given them much narration.  Pause your mouse on each image for a little more information.
