Tourists return to Aleppo, Syria

I just came across this travel piece on Aleppo, Syria, at The New York Times' Web site:
Tourists return to Aleppo


  1. I agree. When I was there in the late 1970s, I saw the beginning of the process of tearing down parts of the old city, to make way for apartment buildings. I'm glad the work was eventually halted. I have a lot of black-and-white photos of streets, arches and doorways.


Please try to stay on topic.
