Palmyra

The news that the Syrian government forces have re-captured Palmyra in Syria reminded me of the memorable time I spent there back in 2007. Palmyra is an ancient Semitic city, a UNESCO listed sight. Archaeological finds date back to the Neolithic period and the city was first documented in the early second millennium BC. Sadly, much of it has been damanged by the so-called IS.

Attached are some of the pictures I took then.
