Damascus 1976

Home Contents Interview Conspiracy Quotations

While I was in Egypt on United Nations Peacekeeping duties, I made a two day trip to Damascus. My primary memory of my visit is a horrendous case of food poisoning from eating a salad in one of the city's finest restaurants. I also remember pictures of President Assad everywhere, typical for this type of government. The surprise is that he did not make it into any of these pictures.

These are scans of original black-and-white pictures, which are a little the worse for wear. The images are a collection of street scenes around the city. As I kept no notes, I cannot give details - except that the fifth image is obviously the airport.
