I love Antakya and have been there several times, always staying several days. In December 2008 I arrived shortly before the Kurban Bayramı or Feast of Sacrifice brought life almost to a standstill. I decided not to try and travel but stay for the duration, and liked it. Weather was at times bad, but with the wonderful museum nearby - and open during the feast days - I could always find shelter. I will show new museum pictures later. I now show pictures taken before and during the feast days. On the first day: lots of slaughter going on along some of the streets, blood flowing down the gutters of the small streets on the hill. I only show glimpses of it. Then one or two almost stagnant days, and then life kicked in, with the great bazaar area opening up, if only to cater for the 10.000 Syrians who reputedly visited the town, wanting to do some shopping.

I may cut up this gallery later, and once I have some time I will add captions.
