Syria for American caucasians?

Jump to last reply

I'm very seriously considering an invitation to visit Syria next summer with a friend of mine who has family there. We would be staying with her family in the mountains but traveling around a bit as well. While I know my friend would never put me in harms way, I have to ask: how safe is it for a blonde hair, blue eyed American female to travel there with another female? How will I be perceived? My friend is incredible helpful in explaining the culture and taboos but I still wonder about how the general atmosphere toward Americans. If anyone has been there or has suggestions for me I'd very much appreciate it.
