20/10/00 Alep

Housing  : Hotel Al-Jawaher , bab Al-Faraj

Good hotel without luxury. . The roof cost 150 £S, the simple room cost 250 £S. The roof superb, is well arranged, place to sleep, small decorated fountain. I think that's better than a room.

Excursion  : The citadel  : Entry 300 £S and 15£S for students. Splendid sight on all the city. Not a lot of explanation take a guide (book).

In microbus until Daret Azze (10 £S) then discussion with the driver until St Siméon (75 £S or 100 £S without discussion) . Entry 300 £S and 15 £S for students. Possible return in stop.

Excursion in the Souk  :

Superb covered souk. not missing, do not hesitate to haggle over.
