Raqqa, Syria

Can you find the oven? Look for the round 'black hole,' peer in, and see the glow at the bottom. Want to be a baker? Slap that unbaked dough on the oven's sides. Watch it bubble and brown. You can see the result. In many neighborhoods, baking bread is a craft, not a manufacturing process, but neighborhood bakeries like this are fast disappearing. [1993]
