Palmyra: Vue Générale

Wish you were here.
One of our great achievements in recent years has been the narrowing of our world, the growing number of places we can no longer visit, that are even being destroyed. 

Looking at this old postcard of Palmyra made me think that soon this is all we will have left.  Old postcards of all the places we can no longer go to - too dangerous to see or no longer there because they have been blown up by people more serious about history and culture than ourselves.
