OKAY so the little blurb I wrote about this didn’t save because of numerous malfunctions on WordPress’s part…cough…cough…but I DID NOT mean to post this many photos, in fact, I had two lovely, separate posts going but they were funneled into one big post…
twice. So finally I just said, you know, what, eff it, I’ll post 250 photos and drown your eyes.
Normally, there are half to a third the amount so, like the Eagles, take it easy. Maybe break it up a bit, over a few days. You know. Enjoy the kitties and try not to cry.
For the love fo god
I like reflections
Um, okay, sure.
Creepy baby paraphernalia
SO much stuff
Roasted chestnuts, not exactly sanitary but yummy. A nice old man gave me one to try
I saw this guy a couple of times, he didn’t speak English but he taught me the names of the fish while puppeteering
He asked me if I wanted to come party, nah.

If I bought anything in the bazaar, it would have been this.
I was checking out this pipe when a man asked if he bought it for me would I marry him. I said sure, buy it. It was around $15,000, he didn’t buy it.
I was tempted until I found out they were made in India…

I got the Palace and crapped out. Too hot, too many people. Too expensive too! But I met some cool people in the gift shop who invited me to a party. Schwing!

Loved the outfits
I like when people want to me to take their picture
I caused a mob scene with these kids at the park, the girls were so sweet and affectionate. They were fawning and using the few English words they knew. I was beaming with happiness.
He made me come have coffee. I did. It was fun. Then I left. People are really generous there… he did try to get me to come out with him but I just really wanted caffeine.
