Noria in Hama

Tuesday, August 16. Hama, Syria. Today was a travel day. I caught a minibus to Homs (75 Syrian pounds; $1.50) and then another to Hama (25 Syrian pounds; $0.50). Hama makes a good base for touring Syria's other big attraction—Crac Des Chevaliers. Hama's main attraction are norias—wooden water wheels up to 20 meters in diameter used for irrigation.
