Aleppo souq

Getting lost in the city is the way to go; there you find the little souks which provides everything from scrap metal to live chickens to the people living amongst it. Where you share the alley-ways with children delivering shai, motorbikes weaving through women dressed in chador, mini-vans squeezing in-between the stone walls, and the occasional man on a donkey ambling through it all.

They are also the place to eat, paying 0.25€ for a falafel, and washing it down with a fresh local brew.

As the sunlight fades, the streets fill with the sweet smell of narghile tobacco.
