Syrian Odyssey

I am back after a fabulous two weeks in Syria despite the flu. We saw, we marvelled, we explored, we played a little with textiles , we ate, we delved into history, we met people and their crafts,we spent time in souqs , palaces and ruins,we slept in a bedouin tent- basically that sums up my love affair with Syria! I will be sharing photos and experiences over the next few weeks as well as trying to get some projects done for the Bernina blog.
Maybe some of these things could have helped for the flu??

These are Syrian pickles- aren't the colours fabulous??

And some blue glass bottles- one had to come back of course!

So sorry you got the flu, but happy to see your photos of Syria. Those pickles are quite psychedelic.

What a beautiful disply of pickles! Hope you're over the flu now.

Dus behalve een virus heb je ook veel inspiratie opgedaan, wat een kleurrijke foto!

I was in Syria last year so your images are very familiar. I loved Syria too.

Wat een mooie foto's die kunnen zo in een boek gepubliceerd worden.
