Glad to finally get out of Aleppo. In recent years I've developed a pet peeve with regards to people casually clearing phlegm from their throat and then spitting it out. You know the sound.
In Aleppo, it was non-stop. Was the change in the weather making people sick? I haven't noticed this anywhere else in my travels. I'm convinced it's Aleppine in nature. I found it repulsive and had to flee the city.
I'm Latakia now, on the coast. The veils have given way to tight jeans.
Having a good time - not too keen on writing travelogue material because I find that stuff generally impertinent. But I do have some notes about traveling through Aleppo that I'd like to type up, just in case it helps Googling travelers.
