go to syria -- you won't be sorry

We were in Syria last May. This year we have heard that people are canceling their trips because of unrest in other countries of the Middle East. I have been reading as much as I can find about Syria this spring, and I believe that travelers would find as warm and safe a welcome there today as we did in 2010.
