  • Years ago, my grandmother, God rest her soul, used to take us there. Engraved still in my memory are the wrestling scents of my Damascene childhood. Spices, perfumes, dust and layers of years comprise that mysterious warmth I long for. Thank you for bringing me there.

  • I like it.

    you see people, old and young.

    you see male and female

    you see secularistic and religious icons/symbols

    you see food, salty and sweet

    you see hijab and bra

    you see architecture, new and old

    you see styles, contemporary and traditional

    you see.......

    what a mix, what a confusion, what a motion, what a decantation between x and y, what a lack of definition, what a society, what an overlapping it's entities are facing. what an undefined beauty.

  • Dear Ghalia,
    I'm curious to know if you are the one in the interview with Current.tv video clip about Syria.
    At the end of the video the interviewer sit with 3 guys and a girl somewhere in Damascus talking about blogging and the government ease on blogger.

    By Blogger trustquest, at 29/12/06 5:05 PM  

  • I realy enjoyed watching that interview on current tv. does anyone if theres any others.

    By Anonymous aysha, at 2/1/07 3:48 AM  

  • Yes, it was Ghalia on that TV clip.

    Ghalia you spoke very well.

  • Thank you Ghalia,
    Please forward this message to the person of concern.
    I'm an American of Syrian descent and I was watching that video and what was surprising to me at the end the video, a young man from Damascus who looks in the Camera and said to the American that: Syrian are not backward people, they have electricity, they have internet and they do not use camel for transportation. It hurts me that he does not know that they are backward, they better use the camel because it makes more sense and they do not use the internet. What I mean, this gentleman did not realize that the current setting in his country (off course we know that some use the internet and electricity), is worse than he thinks. I do not mean this in any discriminating way, I hope young men in Syrian do not fool themselves that they are on the right track, and forget that they need real change. I will tell him, you only say that you have internet when young Syrians pay for internet high speed connection 0.01 of the monthly income for the lowest income in the country (even military services people). This is not far fudged idea, the cost for internet service to population does not cost government more than the 0.01 from lowest income, but they do not want to change life from the Camel Time to the Twenty First Century Time and till now, regrettably, you do not up with time sir. Although, this is not the standard for a civilized person, the standards for civility are manners, social relation, decency and self confidence, like the other gentlemen in the video.
