Wow! Thank you for the pictures. They are so colorful and ornate it's amazing. I had no idea it was like that there.

Also love the pictures of the people. They do seem quite friendly. Did you find that to be so?

Are you a professional photographer? To me the quality of your pictures in as good as what I have seen in Nat Geo.

Another wow! I would be curious to learn more about how you arranged your trip: transportation, transfers, hotels, etc. It must have been challenging.

Fabulous. So interesting. The people, the street scenes, the architecture, the grandeur contrasted with the crumbling cities, you are a great photographer.

Grazie. The photos are incredible and I love the mix of the ancient and the contemporary. Some of the ancient iconography resembles what I imagined ancient Persian iconography to look like; makes sense given the proximity. The mosques are among some of the most ornate I've ever seen. Was it easy to travel around? How prevalent are checkpoints? The places where I encountered the most checkpoints are Egypt and Jordan.

Thanks very much everyone! I am just a traveller, yes the people are friendly. It takes a long time for the transfers and to go through the numerous checkpoints. I had a guide a driver and an interpreter who helped me organize the trip. My best regards !
