Maaloula Syria

Bread comes out of the oven steaming hot and is often carried home in plastic bags.  It must be dried, lest it turn soggy or even mold.  Every surface is a potential drying rack.  The little boy's job is done; now the adults take over; and soon the cycle repeats itself as it has for centuries.  [1996]
