|Armenian Church, Aleppo|
One of the delights of touring the souks, citadels, churches, hotels, and other buildings, was the lighting. At times, there was the feeling of being in an Ottoman fairytale. CFL bulbs are used everywhere and while that seems so environmentally with-it, garbage disposal is such a nightmare in Syria, one really wonders where the used bulbs end up.
Below are some examples of such interest and beauty.
