At the bazar

Ah the bazar…

It reminds us of the tales of 1001 nights, a place where you can find wonders like Aladdin’s lamp or a flying carpet, if you only know where to look and are not afraid to barter. People from all over the world, all these colors, the smells – let’s face it, a bazar is simply a wonder of the orient.

Our guide told us that they always take their guest to the bazar twice, once on the first day of the journey and once on the last, as most people are simply overwhelmed with all the impressions. And so we did one visit to have a look, enjoy the sensation and a second one two weeks later for shopping.

Speaking of shopping, the bazar is essentially organized like a mall. You enter at the section with cloths, then comes the shoe section, then everything for the baby, further in the carpenters and then the blacksmith. I guess the biggest difference to a mall is, that there is no air condition🙂

The moment when Anita discovered that this woman was selling pigments for making colors. Once they were done doing business, there were two very happy women :)

The bazar, the place where oriental dreams come true.
The clothing department. The place to get your t-shit, skirt, scarfs and things you didn’t know you had been looking for
