I start this gallery with some pictures that are nothing but shots I took when approaching the Salihiye district from downhill, starting near the old station. I was informed "This is Abou-Rummaneh's main avenue : Jalaa Str. Going to Rawdah Sq." One passes some embassies but once again I was told not to take pictures.
There was a funny part when the soldier who stopped me told me surely I could not take pictures of embassies in my country (The Netherlands) and I had to tell him I was certain there was nothing stopping me. He was surprised, to say the least.
