My Sister, Nicole Vienneau, Has Gone Missing in Syria|
Re: internet access in Syria
Internet access in Syria is very easy to find these days. It has really changed quickly in the last 5-10 years. There are numerous internet cafes in Damascus, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Tartus, Lattakia, Tadmor (Palmyra) and even many small towns like Bludan, Kassab, etc. The only fairly large town/city I haven't found an internet cafe in is al-Raqqa, though there isn't much reason to stay there for more than a couple days!
They haven't attempted to censor Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail in awhile, either, because most internet cafes were just using proxies to get around the blocks. I haven't had trouble accessing either in atleast one year.
