Photos: 10 years ago in Syria

In October 2004, ten years ago this month, I was wandering around Syria on holiday, which was wonderful. It's both sad and depressing to think of what might have happened to some of these people and places in the years since then. Certainly Aleppo has been pummelled, Apamea has been ravaged by looters, Palmyra has been shelled and Krak des Chevaliers has seen its share of troubles too.
