The last divided capital

I live in the last divided capital
The other day we went for a walk on "the other side"...
I enjoyed all the different images and cultures all within a few minutes of walking distance...Take a look!

We went to this place called "Hani tou Pantziarou" which used to be an Inn where travelers could stay for the night and they could leave their horses in the courtyard to eat, drink water and get some rest. The image below is from outside the rooms.
We also wen to Agia Sofia, it used to be a temple but now they've turned it into a mosque. It really is a pity because it's a great building to ruin it. But i found interesting the place people wash  their feet before they go in. Notice the tap and marble?
On our way back i noticed this cart.  Somebody must have been selling this fruit. I don't know the name in English but if you eat it after 2 - 3 hours in the fridge it's soooo refreshing and tasty!!!
Oh the spices!
We sat in the courtyard of the Inn and ate lahmatzun, pourekia and kattimeri. I am not sure about their origin but i think they are originally from Armenia but we also make them. 
Lahmatzun is made of minced meat. Pourekkia are made of minced meat or hallumi cheese if you prefer them salty or of cream or anari if you prefer them sweet.
Kattimeri (the one on the right side) is sweet with cinamon and honey.
Green soap bars.

That's all folks!
