Hitchhiking out

Southwest towards Tadmor (Palmyra), Damascus

There's a big roundabout at the end of town, where you, walking in direction Tadmor, can find a water supply after some 200m walking. From there you can easily hitch and find some shadow (see the guy on the left inside the picture). Traffic is low, as the next city (Palmyra) is a 200 km ride away. You for sure don't want to get stuck in the desert inbetween!
