Sunday donkey bloggging
Since I've finally got my scanner working again after the move (and I hope the printer, although I haven't been game to try that yet), and having just stumbled across more Aleppo pictures (an earlier set was posted here and here), I thought I'd share some of my pics from the wonderful bazaar in the city. (And that adjective is being applied by a person who hates "normal" shopping.)
But shopping in London is never like this ....
It was in a shop like the last that I bought one of my favourite pieces of jewelry, a necklace containing an Australian 50 cent coin of the Queen's silver jubilee (1977). There's nothing special about the coin in Australia - you might easily get it in change some time, but in Aleppo it must have seemed something special, and was set in a very fancy silver setting, with a heavy chain. I had to bargain very hard indeed to get it down to a price I was prepared to pay.
