The Palace Of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad

As we were entering Damascus, our taxi driver pointed out the palace where Bashar al-Assad lives on a hill overlooking the city. It’s quite a structure:


You can get a pretty good view of the impressive layout of the palace and the surrounding gardens from Google Earth. Just type in “Damascus, Syria” and zoom in on the massive building, surrounded by greenery, that has the commanding views of the city. It’s hard to miss.
