Damascus -- A Neighborhood Mosque

One afternoon we were walking in a neighborhood with Samer and Basheer, and we stopped by this mosque for a quick visit. Unlike the impressive Umayyad mosque or the ornate Sayyida Ruqayyia, this mosque was one of scores of ordinary neighborhood mosques throughout Damascus.

Here it is from the outside

Some decoration within

The women's section

and there are the men

Susanne and Samer
Can you guess which is the genuine Arab?

Imagine that ... a ceiling picture!

Guys reading at the mosque

Some grinnin' Arabian gal we saw there

Aw shucks! It's me!
