Syria trying to attract Belarusian pilgrims

Syria has expressed its interest in attracting Belarusian Christian tourists. According to the Syrian ambassador to Belarus, Dr Farouk Taha, "Syria is the cradle of the Christian culture and religion: there are a lot of religious monuments which are very important for the believers there."

Taha wants the Belarusian travel industry to promote Christian religious trips to Syria.

Thanks for stopping by, Mo.

Do you mean the place in the picture? It's the house of Ananias in Damascus. I agree, it is beautiful.

Hello Rashed! I must agree with Mo. The banner picture and the picture in the post are gorgeous. I wanted to thank you for following my blog, Sagewood Manor. I intend to begin posting regularly the first of next year. Thanks for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you again soon!

Hi, Jen,

Thank you for visiting, and for your kind words! The banner picture is also from Wikipedia; it shows the Qutb Minar in Delhi.

I'm looking forward to the opening of Sagewood Manor. :)
