#Raqqa #Syria
President #Bashar_alAssad visited Raqqa in November 6, 2011 and you can hear people are shouting "Ahla Wsahla Ya Bashar" which means "You are so welcome, Bashar"
The city of #Raqqa, the dear #Syrian_city was occupied by the Western-backed #ISIS_terrorists under the supervision and complete support of the #USA and its criminal allies, and later it was completely destroyed by them.
#Raqqa #Syria in 2011
All these people have lost their homes, they have lost their houses and their memories, they have lost their beautiful city, they lost every thing...

THE TRUE ORIGIN OF RESTAURANTS
Thread

Centuries ago, like now, there were hostels, posadas or taverns where food was served in exchange for money, as in a thermopolium in Rome (snack-bar) where we, readers of @LRB @TwitterBooks @nytimes @NewYorker @washingtonpost, would often go
After the #fall of the #Roman #Empire in these businesses food was served in shared tables and consisted of a fixed menu, according to what was already prepared. Even the nobility, like celebrities today, would frequent when traveling.
But, when did the concept and business of restaurants truly begin?
It began with Paracelsus (1493-1541), a brilliant Swiss physician who modernized medicine with rational clinical judgment and changed the way we eat in the #Western #world.
