A Day at the Souq (15 images and a bit of reminiscing)
Sharjah’s Blue Souq, down the road from my old house. Where i got my first (and only) pair of two tone harlequin-esque Alien workshop pants….good times. While Sharjah may not have reached the heady heights of Dubai in recent years, buildings have still cropped up about, and dirt roads have given way to pavements and pedestrian crossings. But the Blue Souq remains, the same on the outside and the inside as it was that many years ago as i tugged on my mother’s pant leg for a 25 fil bucket of popcorn…….i didn’t get it.
