Shepard Boy 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.  Before I speak I 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.
