Shopping in the Souk
Walking through the
Souk al-Hamidiyeh in Damascus is a treat. It is smaller and more accessible than the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and it takes less time to literally see everything.
"Everything" includes jewelry, fruits, candies, spices, nuts, rose petals and more.
Shopping can be hungry work ... pomegranates and corn can help.
Mr. Wonderful abhors shopping of any kind, so I was on my own with some ladies from our pilgrimage group and spent a blissful few hours exploring and indulging.
