Third World Countries
I wouldn't be worried just yet about this turn of events. When I was in Brazil I could not find any Internet cafes in the back water I was living in and the Internet at the hotel did not work. I was there for three weeks without Internet.
How long is she expected to be in Syria? Has she got explicit instructions to contact you and the other members of her family? If not, then I would just wait and she will eventually be in a position to use modern day technology for communication.

Re: Third World Countries
Nicole has an agreement with the family to contact someone at least every two weeks. This was more difficult to do when she was 18 and the Internet wasn't everywhere, but for this trip it was very easy. If she expected to be late, she'd let us know ahead of time. This is her fourth big trip, so it was a standard routine.
Unfortunately, there is no possibility that she just "forgot" - we only wish it were so!
