What are those green lights?

They are mosquees. I guess there are thousands of them in Damascus.

Why just green? It’s the colour of Islam and of the peace, as more than one muslim told me.

Mi sono innamorato

I felt in love with carpets

It’s impossible to don’t be attracted by handmade carpets showed in all turkish and arab cities, it’s difficult to don’t take a closer look.
And in Damascus there are so many of them, of course.

Colorfull or sober, locals or imported, silk or wool or cotton or mixed made, beduin or kurdish style, so small to fit on a chair or so huge to cover a whole saloon wall.

Beautiful. And not expensive, especially if one is good in bargaining.
You got it…
