One more traveler

In Mar Musa I met a french guy, unfortunately I can not remember whose name, intent on writing a book. He was there for a week and had intention of spending one more.
Why am I talking about him? Because he speak a little italian, he likes Italy and especially Sicily and he is nice. Just think, a Frenchman. :)
But especially because he had arrived in Syria by hitchhiking. Soon he was going to take the only flight of his trip, to Dubai, only because forced (it is not possible to cross Saudi Arabia by land). And from Dubai he would “ferry-hitchhike” to India and conclude his trip in Australia.

Traveling lets you meet amazing people.

Incontri di alto livello

Meeting high society

In Damascus, in a high quality keffieh shop, where proudly I bought mine with embroidered edges, I met a man, accompanied by two more, who was going to buy a palestinian one. The three, very friendly, were yemeni and they helped me in bargaing, so I got a good price. The oldest one told me he is a yemenite parliament member. I got surprised and I told him I’d have liked to visit his country but at that moment it did not seem appropriate, given the political situation. He apologized, visibly disappointed.
