Throwback World Refugees Day : Little Damascus street in October City

Location 6th of October City, Giza Governorate, Egypt
Earlier this week , the world celebrated  the World Refugees Day and on Friday the World woke up to the news that the people in the UK voted to leave and the refugees played a role in the decision that is turning Europe and the world upside down.
I will seize those opportunities to share my photos as well my short trip to that Little Damascus street in October city in Giza in March.
I went to one of the famous Syrian streets in October city for a work assignment, where a huge flourishing Syrian community is located since 2012.
In the suburbs of Giza governorates, October city has been a perfect location for Syrians just like Iraqis before them.
Already Syrians there told me that they found every kind of residence and rent that suit all classes. You will find villas in gated compounds for rich Syrians as well affordable rents for working-class Syrians.
Same thing for schools , from international expensive schools to the public schools where Syrian students are treated like Egyptians as Special Syrian schools made by Syrian associations in Egypt for young Syrians students.
When I tried to reach that street in October city , a Young Syrian man standing in another street gave me directions.
Located behind October University and Al-Hosary Mosque , that Syrians street is the most famous among the streets of October city owned by Syrians.
The  street is actually a passageway between building complex known in the area as "Al-Amerika" {The American} Building.
 Locals call it "Al-Amerika Mall"

Inside the Syrians street
