Damascus – 4 years ago

Damascus – as I have seen it four years ago. It was the last peaceful days in Damascus.  I will never forget what has happened at night March, 18, 2012. That night I was so scared because I heard the rockets near my place, I heard the shooting guns and it was so dark that night. I understood that life in the most important  than everything. After few days I left Damascus, but I wonder if Tala tower is still staying decorated with a seven-story image of a smiling Mr. Assad.
