An old house in the old city

This is my house

In Damascus, most of the old houses are similar.

The man in the video below is my Father. He used to clean the yard and do the maintenance of the house by his own hands like other old men do there. I talked about my Father in another post: Home is where the heart is.

I believe you know now the story behind my logo!

  1. Absolutely beautiful and serene!! These memories are always a treasure…
    Hope one day Damascus will revive from all these and you will go back again.. 😊

      • I’ve always been fascinated by old buildings that are still being lived in and enjoyed, long after their original owners are gone. Sadly Australia is such a young country there’s little that truly /old/ here.

      • We used to make jokes about the ghosts of previous dead owners! Hehehe.
        I met wonderful people from Australia. And people not stones are what matter at the end!

      • -grin- Not sure I believe in ghosts but…it’d be fun to see one.
        And yes, you’re right, life is what matters. Always. 🙂
