Jammed in Roman Caves, Ducking Syria’s War

SARJAH, Syria — Abdulkader Darwish did not go far after a Syrian military aircraft dropped a bomb near his house last year, prompting him to gather his family and flee. He ventured with a shovel into the local olive groves. There he dug through the sealed entrance to an abandoned Roman cave.

Nine months on, dozens of members of the extended Darwish family have passed a cycle of the seasons crowded together in the damp and almost unlighted space. They have gained neighbors all the while, residents of a subterranean community in Syria’s northwest.

“There are many caves here, a line of caves, like an ancient village,” Mr. Darwish said as he huddled with several children inside. “All of them have been cleaned and are now occupied. There is not a vacant cave.”

Looks like it could be a tad bit chilly in there! Look at all their clothes, and the woodstove in the middle!

I hope they don't get buried during an earthquake :(

One father said his infant daughter has developed severe breathing problems because of the smoke inside the caves. Having fires are the only way to heat and cook and there are few places to vent the smoke. :(

Ha! That looks like a fun spot to hang with the dudes...

Hot coffee and hot bread all around.

All I know about politics is that Yahshua just needs to come back and burn up this mess...

Smokeless cooking...a good survival topic...

I wonder if there are any hotsprings in those mountains? There are tons of them along the rockies in the states.
