My heart bleeds for the people of Aleppo

Just a couple of weeks before the outbreak of the civil war in Syria, we visited the country for a holiday. The Arab Spring had engulfed Tunisia, Libya and Egypt but, on the surface, all seems quiet in Syria.

Every time I see a news item about the situation now in Syria, I remember our visit and my heart bleeds for its people. Currently the conflict in Aleppo – Syria’s largest city – is especially fraught and tragic. What did it used to be like there before the war? You can read my travel notes here.
