3how is the political situation feeling there currently? we are meant to be arriving in a week
for a 2 week stint. the Syria standoff is leaving us a bit uncertain as to whether we should go or not (we are travelling with our 1 year old so that is making us a bit more cautious than we would otherwise be on our own...) really want to go though!!
