#7 – Damascus, Syria (population estimated 1.8 million)
I visited Damascus in 2009, two years before civil war broke out. As a government stronghold, the main city has seen relatively little damage compared to the territories that were held by ‘rebel factions’ or ISIS.
I have documented my love of Syria many times on this blog so I will just share some of my favourite pictures.
