In a parking lot outside Camille Chamoun Sports City Stadium in south Beirut, a small cluster of families gathered next to a pair of buses with piles of bags and household goods waiting to be loaded on board, and said their goodbyes.Most of the Syrians preparing to board the bus were leaving family members behind in Lebanon, some temporarily, and some indefinitely.Malaz Ajam said a tearful goodbye to her mother as she prepared to board the bus with her husband and two young children.Ajam said that after five years in Lebanon, the high cost of living and scant work for her husband, a tailor, led her family to return to Aleppo.The couple's house in Aleppo is still standing, but was damaged, and will need repairs before the family can move into it again, Ajam said.Yasmine Haddid took her four children and boarded the bus, leaving her husband behind.
