Syrian rebels who evacuated Homs after a two-year siege and daily bombing are rediscovering the simple joy of eating well and resting.Abul-Joud said that after two years under siege in Homs, his friends felt out of place."But the regime didn't understand the language of song and poetry, and with its violence, it pushed us into taking up arms," Hajj Ayman said via the Internet.As relieved as they are, the rebels say that they already long to return to Homs. Homs city has seen some of the worst displacement in Syria's conflict, with hundreds of thousands of families forced to flee in the past three years.Another 160 people who left the siege weeks before the deal, hoping for release, are still being held by the authorities in a school in Homs city.
