The currency of Syria is the Syrian Pound (SP) and its about 48 SPs to a USD...as a result everything is priced in the hundreds, like the old Italian Lira and it takes some getting used to!
As we set off from Aleppo and stopped at a convinience store to buy some watera nd a few snacks. I must warn you, its better to stop and buy your supplies at a regular supermarket, cos the convinience store will overcharge.
2 pineapple juices, 3 small boxes of Pringles and 1 ice tea cost us 800 SPs. Compare this with a lavish meal at the Sheraton Aleppo, which with 3 starters, 3 drinks, and, 3 main courses cost us 2000 SPs.
