Hejaz Railway Station in Damascus

In the past few weeks, in the Eid break, I went to Miniaturk where they have a Miniatures for every important place in Turkey which a tourist should visit.

But while I was there I found a miniature for Al Hejaz Railway station in Damascus, and any one who visited damascus, knows this especially if he/she like old trains, cause its still working and you will book your train ticket from there (this is old info as I have left Syria in 2012 ).

Now I got a small pictures and tried to be creative, not sure if you guys going to like it or not, but what this prove to me is that I do need a DSLR camera 😉

( unless someone has a plan to give it to me as gift ;D ) ..

Have a local copy from your Udemy course

Ok, lets make it simple and fast, one of the main issue which I can see in Udemy is that you cant always have the video for the courses which you bought, some will give you the ability to download the course, others will not ..

after small search on the internet I found udemy-dl which is a tool built using python and will download the videos automatically so you can watch them offline, so how to use it and where we can get it ?

to get it you can click here, and check the source, of if you are on mac/linux you can install it via pip  like the following

pip install udemy-dl

you can upgrade it using the following command :

pip install --upgrade udemy-dl

to download a course you can just execute the command :

udemy-dl https://www.udemy.com/COURSE-NAME

then it will as you for your username/password and start to download .

PS: change the COURSE-NAME with your course name which you can get from the URL like :


and thats it.

Happy learning.
