Like last week’s painting of Seoul, this etching was done in anticipation of seeing the real thing – back when we lived in Dubai, and getting to Syria seemed pretty straightforward. Somehow, it never quite worked out, and the closest I got to Palmyra was a brief stopover in the Damascus airport on my way to Jordan. Since returning to Canada I’ve missed a couple of chances to go back to the Middle East on university Travel Study Programs… and now, of course, going to Syria isn’t straightforward at all!
