An ancient Bedouin saying states, “The way to keep a trail alive is to walk on it.”

Through your story I personally have been so moved by the dedication both you and her friend Chung have given to find her. I too will continue to keep her story alive having encountered the dangers of travel myself I can empathise very much. Thinking of you all very much as the date of the two year anniversary of her disappearance approaches... thinking also of your Mother today as she visits Damascus. Eva

According to an old Lonely Planet guidebook for Jordan and Syria, 1987, p.96:
"The desert fringe dwellers build beehive-shaped houses as protection against the extreme heat. You can see these houses on the road from Homs to Palmyra and in the area south of Lake Assad."
In this case the area where beehive houses can be found is pretty large and mostly in the desert. It's probably hard to reach by public transportation unless a bus driver would agree to release a passenger along the route. I hope this is of some help.
