All kinds of olives or Zaytoon as they are called in Arabic on sale at the Sharjah Co-Operative store, Sharjah, UAE. After taking this photograph I was again told not to take pictures in there. So no more photographs in side any stores in the UAE.


  1. I never liked olives until I moved to syria and my best friend who is an olivemaniac kept eating them all the time til I figured I might as well try them. I got a whole jar of green olives with lemons from Safita, a small olive town in Syria. They just blew me away and from then on I am hooked.

  2. Same here, i never tried them before but then I started eating them a bit and they are just amazing with Khubus and Humus.
