Hama

View Middle East - March 07 on krissy's travel map.

Out of the rain we headed to Hama to check out our accommodation. Cat crashed all afternoon so took the opportunity to catch up on my blog.

Well we caught a little sleep in as we had to wait for our clothes to be returned from the laundry. Once we had our clothes we got out and saw Hama. There was not really a lot to see in Hama but what we did see was lovely. We saw some ancient Norias, which are big water wheels that they use to move water around, walked around and found some runs of an old Castle. They also have a citadel but some how I think we didn't get to see it as we thought the ruins were the citadels but looking at a map later I realised it was not on the roads we walked. We also saw the clock tower, as it was right outside out hotel. By the time we had seen this and wandered around some of the town it was time to make our way to the bus station for the trip to Palmyra.
