The oldest known dated Syriac manuscripts (AD 411 and 462), containing Greek patristic texts, come from Edessa. It is also well known for its waterfalls. We had our 1st Greek icecream here and it was great ! What was worth posting is this traditional burek which is not so common these days. Its unlike the modern burek which tend to be more fluffy and pastry like. This traditional burek is moist and thick.
