|Damascene host family|
Each passing day I lament more and more the rising death toll in Syria. Such a beautiful country that has made me so welcome every time that I have visited. With some of kindest, most generous people I have ever met in the whole world. I hope that peace is soon found in the streets of its ancient towns.
