Entretanto la passei os anos nas ruinas de Palmyra a curtir a vista da Citadela com um traveller companion Frances. Fica a jantarada la em casa pra quando chegar!
‘…no recorded event has occurred in the world but Damascus was in existence to receive news of it. Go back as far as you will into the vague past, there was always a Damascus… She has looked upon the dry bones of a thousand empires and will see the tombs of a thousand more before she dies..To Damascus, years are only moments, decades are only flitting trifles of time. She measures time, not by the days and and months and years, but for the empires she has seen rise, and prosper and crumble to ruin. Shes a time of immortality.
Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad, 1869
