“My name is Qadri Sharbatchi; I was born in Aleppo and am 70 years old. Sixty years ago, when I was ten years old, I used to sell sweets with my grandfather. When he passed away, I kept working in this profession and did not want it to discontinue. Later, I made a small wood wagon and sold sweets in the city bazaar. I love this profession because I grew up doing it, and I also have implored my children never to abandon it. Now that I have gotten older, I cannot make the sweets myself and sell them too, so instead, my children make them, and I sell them in the bazaar. Everyone at the bazaar loves me; they return daily for my sweets, for I keep them immaculate”.
