Arabic, the Middle-East, hot desert, muted colours, pistachios (pink & fresh off the tree- amazing!), bedouin tents, the oldest souk in the world, old trades & pomegranate juice. I was reading this really good book called ‘The Queen of the Desert’ about Gertrude Bell- a must-read and gives you a great history of Syria & the Middle-East. SO good!! I highly recommend it.
