I have just discovered the most adorable, humble and friendly brothers — Antonio and Ibrahim — who own a mosaic shop on the side streets of Damascus, Syria!
My friend Ghaidaa and I randomly walked inside and were so impressed by their artwork and hospitality, that it was only natural to make a video on their story!
They’ve been working right here, in this exact shop, for the last 70 years without taking any time off — even during the height of the war a few years ago. It’s beyond my imagination how much dedication and resistance these men have, and they do it all with a sense of humor.
Antonio and Ibrahim are a perfect example of the kindness of Syrian people — nearly everyone I’ve met so far on the streets have welcomed me in the same ways that they have.
Can you see why I’m loving Syria so much?!
