Syrian girls in Jordan

Irbid is a town located near from the Syrian border in Jordan. After the war since 2011, there are many refugees from Syria living in this town. The first ice cream shop “Bakdash” franchised from Damascus opened here. While the refugee crises shaked European countries in the summer of 2015, as a matter of fact, most of the Syrian refugees still lived in the countries around Syria. In a camp in Irbid, I met Syrian girls playing at the stairs of a house. Their cheerful smile contrasted markedly with gloomy faces of adults in the camp.
