Fabulous series on Syria! Great shots and info. I spent some time in the middle east in the 70-80's, but only in Israel.

Hama is situated 140 km south of Aleppo and 47 km north of Homs.

Hama has a history that dates back to 2,000 BC and has long been a crossroads between the Mediterranean and the East

Hama has many distinctive features, the two most prominent features is its citadel and its ancient Norias (waterwheels). The Norias have been scooping water from the Orontes River and pouring it into irrigation canals. The groaning sound of the Norias adds a certain mystique to this ancient city. The sounds are quite relaxing and soothing to the mind.

In 1982, the people of Hama revolted against a system under which they were severely under-represented in the government.

Four months ago, the people of Syria rose up against a similar status quo, and demanded a representative, democratically elected government that will put an end to the endemic corruption, injustice and poverty of the current system.
