Tina .......when you were in Damascus in 2005 had you been to, or were en route to, Baalbek and the Temple of Jupiter over the border in the Lebanon? I was there in mid June 1971 in blisteringly hot, bright blue sky sunny weather, along with a busload of other visitors.

If you were in Baalbek do you have any images on line ?

Yes, I used to carry 300 rolls of film in a backpack for a two-week trip.
It doesn't get any smaller as you use it up!  I do not want to try getting
film through all of the airport security check-points that I will
encounter!!
I photographed the Umayyad Mosque in 2005 but I used digital.  I could
never go back to the M6 as much as I might want to because I couldn't focus
it - especially in low light.  Plus the hassle of developing and scanning
film is beyond what I'm willing to do these days.  I'm carrying my SL and
my iPhone.

Tongue-in-cheek no doubt John, but please re-consider what constitutes "a
few rolls of film" for Tina, who mentioned a few weeks ago that she had
6000
images in her current work-in-progress! Not even a Deutsche Bundespost
half-frame special would make much impression on that.

A Leica M6, a 35mm and a 50mm lens and a few rolls of film will avoid
all your worries about power storage other than having a spare battery
or two for the TTL meter. Worked for me when I strolled round Damascus
in late June 1971. My 35mm / f1.4 captured some lovely shots outside and
inside the Umayyad Mosque :-)

This is why I will need power storage:

The solar chargers I bought are not very practical because it takes 35
hours of sunlight to fill the power bank.  :-(   I'm sure most solar
options are about the same.  I just hope I have enough fully charged
batteries when I leave Beirut.

A backpack like that could be an open invitation to an assault or a
mugging in a tumultuous environment such as Syria. The backpack is
broadcasting loud and clear that it has valuable contents.
