Reply To "Tripoli Dreams"

Dear Abdulhamid :

I was moved to tears when I read you letter. I too grew up in Tripoli and more specifically on Shara''a Al Baida. Mahallat Bilkhair. Your letter took me back to all my favorite childhood hang-outs. I lived only a couple of blocks from al-Sahuki Cafe and had uncles who lived in Bab Al-Bahr. I loved walking through Souk Atturuk and enjoyed playing soccer in Makhzin al-Rkham (Arc of Marcus Aurelius). I can relate to all the places and people you mentioned, as I lived a block away from Zangat al-Yahud, where the family of Shaikh Houriyah lived. His grandchildren were childhood friends of mine.
Thank you for stirring up great memories from a great city.

Sicerely,

Ahmad
