Palmyra, Syria, has been in the news lately due to the invasion of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). I went there in 2007, and while I've posted some photos in the past on this blog, I haven't posted all of them. Until now. Hopefully this blog post won't be in memoriam, but given ISIS's penchant for destruction of non-Islamic sites, I'm not holding my breath. It's completely within the realm of possibility that many of the people in these photos are no longer alive, which saddens me tremendously.
