View from the Baghdad Cafe

The Baghdad Cafe is 100 kilometres short of Palmyra and a great place to stop for a cup of tea. This is the view from its shaded verandah across to one of the mountains that rise up from the plain. Two things astonished on this trip that I had never taken in before: one, that it was so green - quite unlike the rocky waste I had remembered from earlier trips in drier times, and two, that there were people and sheep everywhere. So not empty, either.
