Notes -
- I find it kind of an odd coincidence that a region of Damascus which has burned to the ground routinely is used as a setting for this guy's book bonfires Just a coincidence, I'm sure, but still!

- This fella is basically an exact polar opposite of his real-life counterpart. To this day, Ibn Jubair's writings are solid references for the area's famous structures. Given the hardships these cities faced throughout the years, many of the buildings that he describes do not stand today. The Great Mosque, much like the Church of the Holy Cross (see: William of Montferrat's segment of Damascus) are two prime examples.
