Greetings from Beirut

Postby crotalus01 » Wed Apr 10, 2019 9:32 pm

Not exactly a DP these days but trying for a Syrian visa tomorrow. Got turned down cold in Cairo - need a letter of invitation blah blah blah. Hoping the embassy in Beirut is more amenable....

LOL....trying to get into Homs from Tripoli but so far it's a no go. Grabbing a taxi to the border to see if a little baksheesh greases the gears....

I just take the bus and bullshit my way across the border. You won't risk much if you get turned around.
