shuk laila

Last night we went to the flea market for shuk laila (tranlates to 'night market') - on Thurday nights during the summer there is a festival atmosphere with craft stalls, music, bar and a lot of the market stalls being open.

We had a great time starting off with breakfast at 7.30pm :) and then we wandering around looking at the treasures on offer, drinking beer and enjoying the music.


Hope you all have a magical weekend xxx

    ... and you too, Julie. I really love these photographs from the night market. You seem to have really captured that heady feeling of "wandering around looking at the treasures on offer, drinking beer and enjoying the music."
    take care, g xo

    Fabulous photos, Julie. The pomegranates look very, very beautiful. What a contrast to the barbed wire!
