Well, I don't know where to begin from! First of all :
Sorry Ihsan , Ghalia, Dima, Reem, and in the first place, sorry Luma.
When I wrote about this trip, I didn't expect it will be exactly the same one I did about two years ago.
Oops! I told my self when we reached the place we wanted to start from, when I jumped out of the bus and looked around I realized that I was mistaken, I told them it's a medium trip, but in fact, it was the hardest one in my entire life. and now I'm do it again but this time with 4 beginners and the disaster is all of them were my friends.
I can't remember the trip well because of going up to the top of the earth, and then down to the bottom of it.
Trying to convince them how easy the hike in such mounts is, I was telling stories about how super power any human being can have if he wanted to, but deep inside, I was praying no one will fall in the middle of the road.
Actually we weren't the only hikers, we had a company, they even shared drinking water with us.

What makes this trip so special is that we didn't pass through any village, villages always looked so far away, to be more specific, civilization seemed to be so far away. (remember I'm saying this words in Syria!)
Finally we reached Bloudan, all of us wanted to go home, but Bisher -the leader- insisted to take us to a restaurant, going to the restaurant was like a punishment nobody wanted to there!
- Please don't take us to the restaurant!
We were shouting while walking like ducks in the town, most of people were staring at us; people come to Bloudan to GO to a restaurants..??
35, that's the real distance, and not 25 as I said. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard Louma telling me when going home: Thank you Am
- are you serious??
-yea, thanks we had so much fun.
-(thanks god…)

Yeah that’s right, thank you Amr, it was great unforgettable experiment that I wouldn’t have without YOU!!
A lot of philosophical words I can lecture now while I’m resting my legs in front of the monitor about the human hidden supper powers! But there… No way! Outta of place!
Not to mention that the last 5 KM I was almost walking (limping) in the front exactly with Khalo Bisher as he hold my hand like a five years old child dragging me forward! It doesn’t help that much but only the feeling that u r on the top plus no place for laziness…
But yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, we did it all! We had great fun and I’m gonna buy new sneakers pair!

Thank you Amr again, u were all such a wonderful company.

P.S Check my Blog, you r gonna have an exam about it next time I see u.

You have no idea how much I wish I could drop everything here and fly to Syria to go hiking. I think that would just be so awesome. I love reading your blog because I can sort of hike vicariously through you! Thanks for posting pics. It really helps give me a sense of what I'm missing!

To …..,
I write today, Shabbat Holy day for ISRAEL and memory of SAINT JOHN of DAMASCUS, as simple child of LEVI/AARON of the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST THAT IS CATHOLIC with a VOCATION of JUSTICE, to ask to look and TO PRAY (with the 99 Attributes of GOD and with the HOLY ROSARY) for the terrible and bad fire on the HOLY MOUNTAIN CARMEL, where ELIJAH defeated the pagan priests and a hand appeared linked to the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY, IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, QUEEN OF PEACE, remember Islam, near the city of HAIFA in the HOLY LAND, ISRAEL. There have been 40 dead, persons, OUR BROTHERS; and there is danger for others.
That terrible bad fire and who…. Must be defeated with a double edge CHARITY SWORD:
ON THE LEFT BLADE,
“When he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him.
He began to teach them, saying:
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heave.
Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.”
GOSPEL OF MATTEW 5, 1-11; the ANGEL.

ON THE RIGHT BLADE,
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
GOSPEL OF JOHN 1,1; the EALGLE.
WINDS of NORTH and SOUTH, of EAST and WEST blow to stop this terrible fire and to bring away the bad ash of whom …. that already is going away.

BROTHERS of GOD WILL Let’s take TOGETHER this SWORD to stop that terrible bed fire and who ….
tHAT fire offends all of US , the PROPHET ELIJAH, the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY and above all OUR ONLY BENEVOLENT and MERCIFUL GOD, EUCHARIST.
