    I have about 3-4 photo's of the columns if you like. I took them in 2010 when I was there....hell we might even share a couple of ancestors as my roots run deep in the area.

    I can also check to see what photo's my brother has as he's an avid photographer and may have taken a lot more in that area.

    Been to Tyre once but only visited the ruins of what I thought was a hipprodome.

    Nice city/quarter of the city from what I've seen of it, didn't seem like it was being maintained at the time.

    I spent a bit of time in and out of there in 2010 when I was there....loved the older part of the city, but the council needs to take more care of the sea area as I found it very dirty.

    I've seen it, I didn't know that it was a Cathedral! There is no guide and the map was not clear, it is just next to the old Roman ruins.

    I've heard once that there is an ancient Church that was built on top of Melkart's temple, does anyone know which church is it?

    Just don't talk about "the fat guy with a black turban" and you should be fine, make sure that you don't have any Israeli stamps on your passport, and while there don't do any of your espionage activities!

    I have been traveling the world since I was a kid so I know the protocol of being in someone else's house that may not want you as a long term guest.
    Living in NYC for years also takes the small town boy out of you too.

    There's a few tours and one in particular that only does tours on the Crusades which will be my initial first trip.
    After that I'll do the adventuresome solos with pre arranged guides. Syria is part of the trip as well as Turkey, never been to either, should be fun.

    And indeed all talk of the fatman and his mercenary thug militia is on silent mode once I enter the lions den.
    Who would claim to be that, who was not.

    They are not mine Ali_81, they are xr8sk's however I don't think anyone would have objections.
    Personally I would appreciate more photos of Tyre and Sidon, my interest is in what's left from the Medieval period which is when my families were settled in that area.
    Good to see you posting again, I like articulate opposition, when your opposite number can only deliver a rant of 12 words or less and does it poorly, it ain't no fun.

    I'm focused on islamists and their followers these days , I've been in a journey on the net, however I discovered that there is no way to have a debate with them, lets see if Jolio is any better...
