Life On The Syrian Border

At the border I meet a photojournalist. He’s rough looking, missing a few teeth and wearing bulletproofed gear. He looks at my thin leather jacket, then my blue eyes.
“You don’t have any combat gear? Anything warmer than that?” He asks me with a British accent.
I don’t.
“Go with your gut feeling mate, if you feel scared, turn away. And good luck!”
Right now I’m about to do exactly that. Just turn away and go back to where I came from. Some place safe.
