Damascus in Yellow

October 12th, 2008 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

Does EVERY girl in this city have to be dressed in yellow?

Girls in hijab, with long tight yellow t-shirts. Girls with big hair
in yellow blouses. Girls with blue jeans in – you guessed it – yellow

Some have black writing, some kind of image, or even a tactically
placed butterfly.

But they're all the same shade. Like someone dumped a huge yellow
paint pot on the city.

    it is the color of Hezbollah

    Could that be the reason, though? And why only girls and not guys? They’re also a bit out of date if they’re celebrating the 2006 war.
