Damascus in Yellow

Does EVERY girl in this city have to be dressed in yellow?

Girls in hijab, with long tight yellow t-shirts. Girls with big hair
in yellow blouses. Girls with blue jeans in - you guessed it - yellow

Some have black writing, some kind of image, or even a tactically
placed butterfly.

But they're all the same shade. Like someone dumped a huge yellow
paint pot on the city.

this is exaclty what shoked me when i was there.
i don't know why they think that it's the colour of the year!!

it is the color of Hezbollah

it is the color of Hezbollah

Could that be the reason, though? And why only girls and not guys? They're also a bit out of date if they're celebrating the 2006 war.

lol yellow was my fav. When every body else hated it n’ now I don’t feel like wearing them anymore :(

@ matt please don’t mix things up…for guys the color is PINK!! :S
