Banks and ATM's are everywhere but have a limit of 10,000 Syrian Pounds at a time that you can withdraw. You have to start a new transaction for more, hence more fees(~$4.00 total from your bank and their bank in fees for each transaction)

Exchange rates are always displayed near Banks/ATM's

Damascus now has parking meters on every street to reduce congestion of cars that park and stay there for days without being moved.

They're really trying to clean up and organize the city and they will tow/ticket cars that violate the new laws.

Notice the coca cola delivery truck(just like back here in the US there's a war between pepsi and coke, I saw two truck drivers for pepsi and coke getting into an argument infront of a store over delivery issues. It's like the PC vs MAC thing.

There are dozens of private banks but this is the mother of all banks.

There are many police personnel on the streets directing traffic and helping the public. You might get scared trying to approach them when you see them and hear the loud 2-way radio makes you feel intimidated. But they are really the nicest guys, very helpful and friendly.
