Photos of Damascus

The Old City
Souq = market = some very strange things for purchase

Hand-made soap is nice.

...but a hand-made Star Wars belt?

Maybe I'll just buy hand-dyed chicks.

Ice Cream

On our last full day in Syria, we went up to Aleppo (a four hour bus ride). While we were there, we realized we had forgotten to try the famous sahlab ice cream in Damascus. Instead of spending the night in Aleppo like we were planning on doing, we got back on a bus to Damascus. The ice cream was good. I'm still convincing myself that it was worth the trip back.

They pound that ice cream and make it all nice for consumption.

A long trip for that cone.
