  Making a rose of the soap, Trablous
by MalenaN

In this old Khan as-Saboun soaps have been sold for centuries. Nowdays most of the soap is made in a factory outside Tripoli.
I was shown around in the Khan and was smelling on the differente lovely soaps. Couldn't buy so much as I was travelling around. Back in Lebanon I went back to Tripoli just to buy a lot of soaps. There are many differente scents, shapes and colours.
