Shawarma - A great food served by MIDGETS

I ate here every night. Chicken Sharwarm - Pita - Chicken - Mayo cooked on spit
like a Gyro

There were about 10 Midgets or maybe dwarfs that worked here.

A Shawarma - I do not know in which country this originates. This is a sad or
frustrating part of travel. I encounter many things with no way to learn or nobody to
help me learn. I am hoping in the future I can post pictures and readers can post
pictures and other readers can answer the questions.
