    • I looked thru pictures and am trying to find more greenery! Glad you noticed. I will continue sorting through old photos to find more pictures.

  4. Lyn, I was on a road trip for work today, listening to NPR, and kept hearing a clip about how it may be dangerous to stay in Syria and dangerous to leave… I confess to not knowing as much as I should about the refugee situation, and I wondered if you have shared your perspective?

    • I have not. I have all of my in laws there and I worry daily! I tried to get my two nephews here to attend school a couple years back but it never worked out! I just feel sad and now disconnected from them. It is hard to imagine honestly! the people you love and you are sitting in a home, safe, warm. It is hard enough in syria, when we went those summers, electricity turns off 2 hours each day, water is limited! so I cant imagine now!

  6. These pictures give a good idea of the life in that area. It is certainly much different than here in the US.

  7. Do your children ever miss being there? I know there was a lot of hardship but is there anything they miss about it?

    • well we only went for summers here and there. I begged for him to bring his family just never happened!! so, they miss the uncles and family for sure. It is a tough place to go and stay, if you go stay at a nice hotel ok but living there is hard and we were not used to it. We lived as they did for those short weeks and it was tough!
