1- For over a month, I've been in Northern Syria.

Despite the poverty & the threat of war, the people here (Kurds & Arabs) have been so generous to me. Its beyond what u imagine.

In this thread, I'll post few photos of some great meals we were invited to. Look at this.

2- Half rice, half groats. And sheep meat on top cooked to perfection.
3- It was the first time I meet this family.

But they refused to let us leave their house without treating us to Mloukhiye and rice fatta.
4- Another house, another invitation. One sheep prepared specially for us.

The local habit is to eat with your hands directly from the main plate.

The spoon is for the salad.
5- This family picked up the grape leaves from the garden and prepared the best fresh dolma in town. 😍
6- You cant be in Syria and not eat Kibbeh at least once.
7- The picture doesnt do this meal justice.

It's the best rice & chicken u can ever taste. We were given this meal at the house of a Yazidi family.
8- Now you all understand how scared I am to go back home and stand on a scale 😏

The war has done a lot of harm to the country but it didn't affect the hospitality and friendliness of the people.

All of this was offered to me as a guest without asking for anything in return.
