Description of Bosra City and Ruins
Bosra is a city south of Damascus. Pronounced Boo-saara, not like BA-sra, Iraq or as they say on the news BAAZRA, EYERACK. This was an official school trip of brothers and sisters. It was April but already the temperature was climbing. We walked through tons of ruins for hours and I almost passed out (according to Shaz did sorta pass out at the Ibn Kathir Madrassa, you’ll see that later!)
The ruins were interesting and some date to Roman times, but as one British sister said in her cockney accent ‘U seen 1 ruinz u right seenz all of ‘im!’. It’s definitely a touristy place but they were selling some unique items, like the beautiful blue plates with calligraphy. The tall pillar shaped minaret is part of an old mosque called the Mosque of Fatima.
Lastly there are some pictures of some architecturally amazing looking houses that we passed from the bus. Oh and some bedouin tents too!
