Young boys pushed heavily laden carts between falafel stands, ignoring freshly chopped tomatoes and the protests of bubbling oil. Past bright bolts of fabric and military surplus stores – their eyes now wandering, drifting to the uniforms they must one day wear – they continued, working casually, too young to be conscious of their labour.

Siria seems such a culturally different country from European country. Why is it so difficult for them to work legally in Europe, so that they are not imposed to work illegally?

It's fairly straightforward: Syrians have very little money, and a laughable currency. A friend had a sponsor, willing to accept complete responsibility for his actions, but was still denied even a tourist visa.

Hi guided,
As far as I know, there are a lot of Arabian people working illegally in Europe, especially in Italy and France. I have travelled in the EU during the previous summer and Italy was the only country in the Schenghen space checking the passports at the border. As I could further notice, the Italian police used to verify the passports the Arabian persons and eventually make them following the police.

So, you are from South Africa??? How come? I thought you are from Ireland or England? Don't remember.

Look, I really like your writing style, but describing your saliva in such detail... you know, I would have wanted to skip it...;O) if I knew.
