101222 – “Chop chop square”

by Irina Bernebring Journiette

Went to Dira souk, right next to “Chop chop square” – filled with life and death. Today, children playing, women covered by blackness gossiping, lauging. Tomorrow? Execution. Enforcing of Sharia laws by decapitating or stoning. The contrast within this country amazes me. Women in black, men in white. Death one day and life another. The sereness that exsist in this noicy and busy town. I’m left speechless.
