Bosra is a must see for every vistor to Syria. Its a couple of hours away from Damascus by bus. Mima, Mays, Eliass and Yazan all went with me that day. We got a local bus from the bus stop in Jeramine? in Damascus to Yazans home town. Can't remember the name sorry, but it was just south of Duma. From there Yazan used his family car to drive us all to Bosra.
Bosra is an old Roman ampitheatre. It is very well preserved due to the black rock specail to the area that was used to build it. Its the sort of place you can sit about for a long long time. There are lots of things inside to explore. The pictures will explain it better than I ever could.
Afterwards we had a quick visit to the old city next to it. Then it was back to Yazan's family home for lunch. Syrian lunch is the main meal of the day, so there was lot of food. Had three full plates, the greedy guy that I am. During the meal I tried Adra. It the Syrians wisky/vodka/national spirit. It tastes like your drinking Anicede.
After all that we headed back to Damascus and spent the evening walking around the old city watching the easter festival celebrations and again didnt get to sleep till the early hours of the morning
