Word and Image



In Al Balad, the old city, there is a café. There are really not too many. The city is composed of twisty winding narrow streets with run down tenement homes that are in need of serious renovation. The area was declared a UNESCO heritage site. So the renovation will begin and I will not see it’s completion. Right now it is hard to see much quaintness. But this little area reminds me of a small French café.

  3. Thanks folks. I am safe. The news is worse than the situation on the ground. And the renovation of the old city will take a long time so that I doubt I will see the end of it.
