“Inside, the ceiling is low, cobwebbed, and the shelves beneath it cluttered with treasure. There are ancient Berber chests, silver teapots, ebony footstools, and swords once used by warring tribes, and cartons of postcards left by the French, Box Brownie cameras, candlesticks, silk wedding belts, and camel headdresses crafted from indigo wool.” ~Tahir Shah’s introduction to Marrakesh: Through Writers’ Eyes

Reminded my hubby of all those quaint shops he used to visit with his family when they were living in Pakistan... and all the strange haggling that took place ;-P
