"When Buying..." Aleppo Warnings Or Dangers Tip by coceng

Aleppo Warnings and Dangers: 18 reviews and 25 photos

This happens too often to me when walking around in The Souqs !
Even if you want to just look, the shopkeepers will ask you to buy the things that you look at !
Make sure to say, "La !"...As usual when visiting The Middle East anyway.
Some shopkeepers took the things that I was looking at, put them in a plastic bag & tossed it me & said the price !
We would feel guilty if we don't buy it, maybe that's what they thought ?
They will start saying that they didn't have any business for that day or the children hadn't eaten anything for the day etc etc.
Yes, of course I felt sorry for them, of course I would love to help but money was as tight for me !
Would they thought of that ?
