A man talks to a costumer as he stands inside his barber shop in the Old City of Damascus, Syria, September 13, 2018. For much of the war the eastern Ghouta rebels fired mortars into Damascus, including the Old City, where shrapnel marks are often visible scored into streets or walls. Cafes spill out onto the cobbled streets of the Old City at night as carefully coiffed barbers give fashionable haircuts to young men, and groups of friends gather to play guitars.
