Le Souk

10.05.2011


The Middle East practically invented the all-in-one shopping extravaganza thousands of years ago with their souks (markets) and grand bazaars. They're an excellent place to take in local culture and you can find anything here – offerings run the gamut. They're like small independent cities within a city and one of the coolest places to check out. Here are some of the best I've seen so far.. (I can only imagine the one in Marrakech, Morocco!)

Oh my! I want to go SOOOO bad! My husband was in Bahrain & similar areas of the Middle East while on deployment a year or two ago... he has many similar pictures and bought so many amazing things. He was able to get THREE HAND MADE SUITS (with hand made shirts & ties to go with them!) for approx. $100 each. I cannot wait to go back with him! :)

I love these markets as they offer such a wide array of exotic finds for the home, to eat and to dress up...How much I wish I can go to the ones in Marrakesh and Istanbul. These are great images, I love them!

My favorite thing to do when I go back to the Middle East is to stop by the souks. Gorgeous pictures.
