Beautiful Damascus

These are a few images I took of the people in Damascus a couple of days after the riots in Daraa. My second visit, part of the Arab Spring journey, was to Syria. I arrived in the beautiful Damascus 2 days after the first reported incidents in the southern city of Daraa. Syria reminded me of contradictions and the incertitudes of the first revolutionary moments. The majority of the country was to afraid to dare dreaming of a long waited and deserved change. While they where in denial, fewer, but more and more every day, where challenging the regime and paying with their lives.
