Hama ( the fortress).

Today is friday, holiday for muslims, and in Hama ( حماه,  Fortress)  , as in every town in any arabic country its time for relax, going to the barber shop, share tea and  spend time  chattering between friends and relatives. Afterwards,  its time to visit the Mosque and during the afternoon go for a walk and get a refreshment. Leaving Hama and waking under big trees heading to  the east, There s a charming , quite and friendly place with a georgeus overlooking at the most famous countrywomen from Hama: The two waterwheels, This place:  a nice terrace with live music, nice meals, chay ( tea) and a great variety of flavours for your after-meal narguile ( mmm...apple is my favourite).This place is not only for families but also for young couples and groups of friends.
This waterwheels made of wood were built by the ancient Romans more than two centuries ago over the river Oronte.
Although these waterwheels are the main attraction, there are several interesting places to visit like the old town. There is a small street where local artists have their ateliers.
