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]
