Rif-Dimashq – Syria

Road to Maaloula, Rif-Dimashq Governorate, Syria

Road to Maaloula, Rif-Dimashq Governorate, Syria

It was good to get out of the hustle and bustle of Damascus as we took a trip to Maaloula in the Rif-Dimashq Governorate. As we approached Al Qutayfah I noticed this rural scene and asked our driver to stop. This was the typical scenery on our 55-kilometre trip to Maaloula, barren and dry desert with an occasional few green trees and houses dotted on apparently infertile land.
