Juli 2009

Time Travel in Syria - 2008/2009
When I first "discovered" the streets of Damascus, I felt at once at home. Don`t ask me why, the life in this old city has absolutely nothing to do with what I normally experience in Berlin. But still - the old streets, churches, mosques seem to tell me something

Walks & Talks / 25.09. - 03.10.2009

 [Patricia V.]
Syria at its best
Damascus or Aleppo, which touched more - I don`t know, Damascus is within it`s old town more oriental, or at least what we expect to be oriental, the town of clay and wood, Aleppo is the town of stone, more european at first site, but also with lots of narrow little souq-streets, at least as arabic as Damascus. All these old arabic houses with wonderful hidden courtyards, everyone unique in its beauty - a real must! (not so much the touristic menues been offered in some of them) Drinking mulberryjuice and eating shwarma on the street, tea and turkish coffee everythere is a great oportunity to watch people. Women smoking nagilah nearly everythere for example, gathering around in nice cafes and talk to each other - of course without men..
