بائع كعك بعجوة

A Syrian delight, made of some form of dough filled with pressed dates. The cleanliness of this curbside product is questionable. I can't trust whether it is hygenic or not, but it should taste good. Posted by Picasa

Needle Crafts Seller - بائع أشغال يدوية

This guy sitting near Hamidyeh Souk is selling various handmade needle works. What I can't get is the low price for which these things are sold, relatively speaking. The one craft being held is for 150 SP ($3). I wouldn't accept even $10 for such a work, even if it was sloppy. Posted by Picasa
