We began the day in the Textile district, It was a bit of a shock to the system I must say. Fabric of every hue and description punctuated by sales of high fashion.
The clothes were beautifully made, The fabrics stunning and the lace just needed to be touched.
In the middle of the street were gamblers and speculators alike, their wares set atop 2 cardboard boxes. Joan had an altercation with one when she photographed him, he gesticulated wildly and Joan tapped him on the face which made him even madder. I photographed the procedure from another place until he saw me too. I told him I’m free to photographic anything I like, particularly cheats… !!! He mouthed something which I could only guess was crude as he handled his private parts…. I just laughed at him…. Fortunately he had left when we returned down the street.
The area is rich with fruit and vegetable markets… and the food it to die for.
I had salt and pepper scallops, terrine of smoked salmon and poached egg, and orange crepes and yogurt for dinner. No fried or junk food in these parts.
