The Backstreets of Aleppo, Syria

1.05.2012


Aleppo is made up of labyrinth-like backstreets and alleys that lead to some really intriguing finds. Remember when I posted about this city's fantastic Souk? Well, the best thing to do is just get lost, sounds strange, but here, discovery basically happens on its own. The architecture and designs tucked away in some of these alleys are so beautiful!! It was interesting to come across structures from so many different nationalities, each with its own alluring details, like this black and gold archway from an Armenian Christian church. The old palace that now houses the Museum of Popular Tradition (below) was to die-for. All those intricate doorways, windows, and decor...I'll show you some more of Syria's ancient cities in my next post...


And no matter where you are, you'll probably always find American products! ;-P

Hi Lorena - thank you so much for your comment and visit! I actually just added NYC to my weather list on my phone last night and you are right it said 20! I have lived in the city before and have thought about moving back for the year, I miss it so much! But it will depend on living arrangements and employment - we shall see. :)
