Great PaulVDV 2019-10-17 0:57

Hello Gert,
These pictures show how I remember the citadel.
But without a donkey :)
I visited Aleppo in the time before digital photography. So I don't have many photos to look at.
The Citadel is one of the most impressive monuments of the Middle East.
Good to hear that it wasn't completely destroyed because somewhere I read that. Reopened to the public in 2017? Is there then a public? Erdogan's invading army?
Three very good and interesting pictures!
Best regards, Paul

Thank you Paul,
I also was here before the digital era, and I also don't have many photos to look at. It's very unfortunate.
Most parts of Syria hasn't seen any major fighting the last 2-3 years, so Aleppo should be fairly quiet now. I suppose there is not much of a tourist industry, but there may be some domestic visitors to the Citadel. I am more anxious to know if the fantastic Museum of archeology has been saved. It was one of the best small museums I have ever seen.
egards,
Gert

Hi Gert,

Now that you mention it, I do remember the museum of Aleppo with the very large statues at the entrance.
I hope that the museum has not been robbed and the artifacts then end up in private hands of rich collectors.

I just heard that the USA and Turkey have reached an agreement on a ceasefire.
First give the green light for a raid by the Turkish army and then start negotiating. What a crazy government !

Best wishes,
Paul

A crazy government led by a lunatic with no knowledge of anything.
