As a journalist making a documentary film, I visited Syria for 10 days. I was only allowed in government held areas. I was curious how people still live there after six years of the war.

To my surprise, despite the destruction, people in Damascus and other places still follow their daily routines like drinking the tea and playing social games in coffee shops.
