The Wider Image: Normality returns for some in Damascus after fighting
Dana, 24, a bartender, pours a drink inside a bar in the Old City of Damascus, Syria, September 13, 2018. "During the war, when bombs were falling, it could be days without customers, but we never stopped working," Dana said. 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.
