Went for a walk this morning – thought you might like to see a few photos I took of the local scenery.

Tariq Road – one of the major shopping streets, here as the shops are just starting to open around midday on a Saturday morning.


Rickshaws are a great way to travel – cheaper than taxis, but far less comfortable – and you have to be prepared to haggle a bit to get a ‘fair’ price.


Minarets are seen all over the city and issue a clarion call to prayer which seemingly can be hear everywhere.


This is the local newsagent – hard at work


Loved the look of these strawberries – wisdom got the better of me and I decided not to try them!
