Christmas – Damascus, Syria

Christmas – Damascus, Syria
Originally uploaded by Hasan Bazerbashi.

This is a part of how Christmas looks in Damascus, Syria.

I walked in “Bab Tuma” area where you can find lot of Christmas decorations there.
It was nice walking in the market there, the weather was nice ~5 C, well maybe not that nice, but I like cold weather =)

I also made a video walking in that area and walking in the old Allies of Old Damascus which I will post it to my Blog.

Maybe it isn’t a great photo, but I think it is enough to give the feel of that place!

  • Mr. Hasan: Are you related to Mr. Mazeb Bazerbashi!? If so how is he. My name is Imad and my brother Ziad was a good friend of Mazen from Damascus. Ziad passed away due to cancer early in the Spring. Just wanted Mazen to know. Best regards to him. Regards
