I must admit that I was a little hesitant in starting a friendship with you considering I have heard so many rumors about you. However, rumors are rumors and you proved to be nothing of the sort. It was a pleasure to meet you, to get to know you, to spend time with you and fall in love with you. You were so kind from start to end and when I felt like dying you were there to pick me up again and make me feel better. I am forever thankful.
Your food surprised us greatly. We filled up on fresh juices, the best falafel, fuul, and shwarma. However, I must say that the best part proved to be your people. They don’t seem to have very much that is tangible, but their hearts are filled with so much warmth and kindness that it’s impossible not to fall in love. This is what made my time in Syria so memorable. I ask that you never change and that your country may only improve economically so that many of your people would have a better quality of life.
I shall return very very soon, if not for the food, definitely for the people.
Until that day comes,
