Yes, 41! And Essam, clearly I was not on the ball enough to enter that country from the beginning :)

Meh, you're not missing that much imho.. I found Damascus creepy and disappointing. Khaleeji friend and I even got detained by secret police for a couple of hours for consulting a map on the street at night! Aleppo may well be better but I am not rushing back there after that last experience anyway. Lebanon and Jordan both much, much better. Try Iran instead for an adventurous trip: Shiraz is an hour's flight and a good entry point for nearby Persepolis and also amazing Esfahan and Yazd.
