We arrived in Aleppo via Palmyra on Monday nıght. Nice to be in a big city for a change and Aleppo is a very nice one. Lots of faded old Parisian type buildings again and we went to the best falafel shop since Manchester! Falafel wraps are 30p and I eat lots of them before we leave. We had a cold and windy walk around the city, souks, and citadel Tues mornıng and then unfortuantely had to leave a day early on FCO advice due to protests ın other parts of the country. Despite seeing news coverage of the protests, we didn't see anythıng while in Syria and were always safe. Once again we were welcomed as tourists, and thankfully the heckles in the street are less frequent here!
