Tartus, Syria, 2005:  The French legacy in Syria is still apparent 60 odd years later…  France occupied Syria and Lebanon between the First and Second World Wars, after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. French is still widely spoken in the region, particularly in Lebanon. I think La Vieille means “old woman” -or just old. The sign probably refers to the old city or port of Tartus. Viva la Revolution in Syria…    Canon EOS 1N/Sigma 17-35
