    ... topped ice-cream from the busy Bakdash sweet shop. We look around the Great Umayaad Mosque and then have a tea at a famous coffee shop. It is famous for the presence of a dramatic story teller each night. It is a pity his tales are in Arabic but the thumping of his cane on the ground is still a sight worth seeing.
