I finish my trip more or less like I started it - by looking around
After I have walk around the modern part of the city I reach the conclusion - the old medina and the area around it is - is far more interesting than the modern part of the city. Hence I make my way back to the medina. I spend a bit of time walking towards the medina before I get there - in the streets around the medina is quite interesting as well they got all kind of different shops and the display are nothing like at home. If a butcher is selling beef he will advertise this.
And just how do you advertise you got beef for sale? Naturally you just put up a couple of cow heads in front of your shop. Another butcher shop is selling camel - and what better way can you advertise this than putting up the head of the camel.
I head back for the medina for a final look around and some last minute business. I get a couple of offers of getting guides and fortunately there are a special Bedouin festival going on - it is the last day of the festival no less. I figure - why not have a look - and the festival is actually taking place in the exact same shop I was taken to at my very first day in
I guess I have come full circle by now and I am ready to go home - not that I am looking forward to it considering the winter in
