This week’s list is dedicated to the people in Syria and Iraq trying to survive the winter in the midst of chaos, war, deprivation, and suffering. Not all that uplifting on the face of it, but the perseverance of the people is for sure.
Destination of the Week: The Harim Mountains, over which many walk to reach safety, with little in the way of resources or belongings. It’s their families, and the clothes on their back.
Quote of the Week: “They received us with open arms.” A refugee man speaking of his arrival to government-held personnel.
Band of the Week: Get your Jalal Joubi on.
Meal of the Week: So much to choose from. 10,000 years of cuisine. Dabble away.
Website of the Week: Let’s not forget the Kurdish people. Don’t know much about them? Have a look. Kurdistan is thriving, relatively speaking.
REMINDER: Your comments are always welcome. Love to hear what you have to say, GOOD or otherwise. If you fancy twitter, you can follow more of the muse there. My handle is @jhludlum ~
Enjoy the weekend!
