Damascus, Syria — a few pictures 3

Here are some sample pictures from Damascus.  I simply had a great time in Damascus.  I wasn’t there long enough and can’t wait to go back.  The people were amazingly friendly.  The sights were fabulous.  Go.  Simply — go.

Umayyad Mosque. Massive. One of the most important mosques in all of the Islamic world.

the head of John the Baptist is supposedly in here, inside the mosque.

This was one of the places I highlighted in my 13 Reasons Everyone Should Travel — and for good reason.

About Michael Hodson

I’m an attorney that took off on my birthday in December of 2008 to circumnavigate the globe without ever getting on an airplane. After 16 months, 6 continents and 44 countries, I made it all the way back home. Right now, I am back on the road writing about it all.
