Another aspect of visiting Der mar mousa (monastery) is enjoying the look to the Syrian desert. It is mountainous, rocky in some places, not so sandy as in Arabia. The silence and far yellow-brown views catch your attention here. Most of the highway between Homs and Damascus is just parallel to the desert. Much deeper inside it you may encounter camels, bedwins, and their caravans. I hope one day I could see them.
