the time I walked down Straight Street

Location: Straight Street, Damascus
Year: 2011

The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying — Acts 9:11

This be that street! Found in the Christian Quarter of Old Damascus, it’s a street lined with stores selling anything from pyramid-shaped spices to bulging buckets of Vaseline. When I was there, there were also many restaurants and bars. It’s devastating to know that violence has reached Old Damascus. It will be interesting to see what remains at the end of it all… if there will be an end, which sadly I can’t imagine happening any time soon.
