Aleppo – Halab

I  visited  Syria this weekend to be one of presenters at Pecha Kucha Aleppo V.03 ..  and it was my first time in Aleppo so after 7 hours from Beirut I arrived to Aleppo … Oh on the Syrian borders THEY took my camera to scan it, I don’t know to WHERE,  but can you imagine how i Felt at those  moments? But anyhow I got it BACK-OF COURSE

Mobile network got jammed when I arrived there 😛 because Syrian  telecommunication companies decided to send 60 minutes free to all their customers and you can imagine how everyone was using it.. and yea because of that it took me around  40 minutes to contact my friends – Aleppo  IS A BIG BIG CITY . old buildings, which I liked them .. narrow streets ..and crowded. It’s ..A street Photographer will definitely be very happy .. I  was lucky to get some shots but I didn’t have MUCH Time to go out and shoot people.. but I am definitely going back 😀

Petcha Kucha with around 300 attendees, was pretty awesome we were 10 presenters and I was the 2nd one . I presented  my Photo blog and talked about my blog posts and encouraged everyone to start a blog, it was an awesome feeling :D!

Here are some highlight photos Enjoy !

Thank you everyone who commented , shared , tweeted my previous blog post 🙂
