We visited the old city of Aleppo which has a history of over 4000 years. It has a huge Citadel built around the 10th century. It was home to 3000 people and 500 horses and it is so big I couldn't fit it in a photo. The Mosque within contains the tomb of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist(looks like we can't get away from this guy).
We had lunch at an Albanian restaurant. The food was good but I am longing for something simple like a peanut butter sandwich. We have many Americans on the tour who constantly complain about the spicy food, guess they just want to see a Mac Donald's!
We also saw an ancient water wheel that dates back 2000 years. There are only 17 left now but originally there were hundreds delivering water for irrigation via a aqueduct.
We arrived back to the boat around 6.30pm for dinner on board and a few drinks.
Tomorrow we have another half day of touring before leaving around 4pm for Lebanon.
