"Welcome to the shooting gallery"...

That title says it all: check out Lisa's blog. If a title doesn't do it here's a taster:
The nearly abandoned city reminded us of scenes in Hollywood movies set in Grozny - or Sarajevo, circa 1992. Brush fires set off by Hezbollah rockets blazed everywhere, creating a thick pall of smoke that dimmed the usually bright Levantine sunlight. Bits of ash floated about like snowflakes, the smell of smoke permeated the air and was absorbed in my clothes and hair. And the constant booms, explosions and sirens provided loud background music - a live, post-modern version of Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor for this long shot of Apocalypse Now: The Middle Eastern Version.
