Naples – A Journey to Self-Discovery

Naples is painted in a thousand colors – sings a very popular Italian song.  My recent trip to Naples left me with a whole rainbow of emotions.

Sarwat Bashi

I was born in Aleppo, Syria in 1979. I am 37 years old, married and have a 7 year-old daughter. I graduated from Law in 2005, at the University of Aleppo. I specialized in human rights. In 2008, I was honored by the Syrian Bar Association as a Master Lawyer. In the same year, I published a book titled International Human Rights and Development that reflected the situation of countries in the Middle East. I am passionate about democracy, legal development and human rights and have written extensively on these topics.
The nature of my work has made me extremely sad that I work in the field of law in a state where the law is not applicable. Imprisonment, fines and tightened sanctions are only applied to vulnerable people, while senior thieves, embezzlers and murderers are not only above the law, but also occupy senior positions in the government. I believe that there is no hope in a state subjected to such strongly established dictatorship, controlling the country with bad governance and an endless chain of corruption and human rights violations.

The world today is becoming more and more diverse, bound by unique cultures and languages. We see people from different countries interact with one another and gather in cities all around the world, creating vibrant places to spark the curiosity of any culture lover. Thanks to immigration, cities are transforming into baskets of culture, where people are constantly exposed to delicious cuisine from various nations, foreign languages, and international cultural exhibitions.
