Land and People
A source on food, farming and rural society
Thursday, May 7, 2009
I went to Aleppo last week end. I love this city. I went to the fruits and vegetables souk and took these pictures:
Olives, cheese, crushed red peppers
Strawberries fres from the field
Sheep youghurt and labneh from the back of a pick up truck.
Then I went for a walk in the city and visited the most famous of Aleppo's hotel, the Baron, where TE Lawrence stayed and wrote .
The bar of Le Baron is famous. If you ever go to Aleppo, you must stop there for a drink
Love the picture stories!
