Photographer's Note

This one shows the Roman citadel in Bosra, Syria.

Syria has many stunning Roman ruins, and Bosra is one of the finest. The theater you see here seated around 12k viewers.

Syria is a great place to travel. It is cheap, perfectly safe, with lots of friendly locals, surprisingly welcoming to travelers. Syria is also very authentic - "thanks" to all the bad press that it gets from the US administration, not much people go there, there are virtually no organised groups of tourists, only lone travelers. Therefore Syria still is authentically Arabian, not a mixture of oriental and western influences you see in other countries of the region, like eg in Jordan.

I highly recommend going there!
