Um Eisa, Dates sales person:
“The market situation is really good and there is a huge turn out to buy things, and the prices are reasonable and obtainable by everybody except for the Syrian "Amr aldin" (a type of sweets made of apricot), which is a bit expensive. The turn out is huge because of their excitement for president al-Sisi”.
