Road to Damascus 18 – Homs

Description of Homs

Strange trees in Homs

As you can see we saw a lot of Homs… just kidding. Homs is like a huge modern city. I think the third biggest in Syria. It looked a lot like modern downtown Damascus so I didn’t take any pictures. The pics that are here are of the countryside outside and YES the trees were all sideways bent like that. Kinda freaky I still can’t figure out why they’re like that. Someone told us wind, but can wind do that over time? They’re seriously growing sideways.

The main reason anyone goes to Homs besides that the bus station is a main transfer, is for Khalid ibn Waleed’s Mosque and tomb. See pics of those.
