Topic: [Burckhardt landed at Aleppo in 1809, assumed the disguise of "an Indian trader of the Mahomedan faith", explored Syria, Arabia Petraea, the Great Desert, Upper Egypt, and Nubia before he died at Cairo in 1817, in "the cause of science and humanity". He says that his account of Syria, which has now been "so often described", must go beyond both physical and social geography and "introduce physical observations of every kind". So he concentrates on the weather and how he and his companions manage to survive their journey in the heat by being active in the morning and resting in the hottest hours. The charms which compensate for the discomfort are making a camp at night, either preparing simple food or receiving hospitality "from a numerous tribe of friendly Arabs" and feeling independent of European society]
