ok I'll start you guys off with the skyline or "lack of a skyline", it has looked the same for the past 30 years with the exception to the Four Seasons Hotel. Nevertheless, the view on top of Mount Qassioun is breath taking. Many restaurants and cafes up there and enjoying a hookah during sunset is amazing.

I found these two Syrian soldiers sitting and looking down at the city proposing to each other or something and they were nice enough to be in the picture.

Syrians love to eat and they go the extra mile to make sure they eat well. One thing for sure that you won't have to worry about finding is restaurants. They are all over the place from little kiosks on the streets to high end restaurants.

Shawarma anyone?

Yes, I was surprised myself. It won't be long before we start seeing McDonald's and Burger King. There are so many American products in Syria these days anything from candy bars, Toys R Us, Target, Clothing stores(old navy, gap, etc..)
