To Damascus

Before we left Husain Asked me for some Sun-block lotion, which was surprising since he had never used it during the whole trip. He managed to put too much which got into his eyes while riding, he had to stop several times to wash his eyes, and only got better later in the day.

We knew we had a long and hot day ahead of us so we left early to the "Bab Al-hawa" border crossing where we met two couples on BMW's from Greece going the other direction back home, they had just visited Syria and were asking me about our trip and Kuwait.

We reached Damascus around 6 pm, and I started to feel really tired probably due to dehydration.
