We experienced a most enjoyable walk through the back streets of Old Damascus, through the labyrinth of narrow streets with the upper level buildings overhanging the street, through streets that have existed unchanged for centuries. During this walk I decided to capture some of the doorways of the buildings of this ancient city; whether it was a private home or a business, it was where the people lived and worked. Here are some photos I took; they are in thumbnail view and you can click on it to view a larger version.
