After getting or ticket which leaves at 3.30pm, Amaia and Jose Luis was searching for somewhere to have lunch, I had one at Krak des Chevaliers.The taxi dropped us infront of the bus stop and and from that point we walked to the bus ticket counter so we didnâ€™t get to see much of the surrounding.
The bus didnâ€™t bring us right to the site but we had to hire another taxi ride to the ruins. And we were loosing light already. The best spot to see the ruins is from the Citadel. So the taxi brought us up on the hill where there were a handful of travellers. To be honest Palmyra didn't live up to my expectation from afar. The guides book says it's magical but I didn't think i'st that astounding. Just another ruins I must say. Maybe because I had seen a lot of stones, collonades and ruins all the way before that.
We parted ways at the dusk. Jose Luis and Amaia headed to Palmyra town spending a night to see the ruins again during the sunrise. I headed to the bus station leaving for Damascus.
