The Wider Image: Normality returns for some in Damascus after fighting
Rasha, 30, the owner of Esco Bar, poses for a photograph in the Old City of Damascus, Syria, September 13, 2018. "I like my job. I like bars and night life here. But in the end I would like to move out of Syria. I don't see a future here," said Rasha. 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.
