Just around the corner from a beautiful little mosque, is the Friday Muslim street market.
We found great food. Plenty of lamb and beef, as well as breads and pastries.
While standing in line for some “lung and sausage” this man noticed DaddyBird standing next in line, reached over and patted DaddyBird on the stomach and then gestured to his own stomach. The comradery of portly men, apparently.
So, first his wife took pictures of the two men, but that wasn’t enough, so I ended up taking pictures of all three with their camera and my camera.
We ate some lovely meat filled buns, but the “food adventure” of the day was eating lung. It looks like white cheese. It has a soft texture. It is not something that I would want to eat often, but it is not as weird as it sounds.
We went home to drop off our purchases and then headed out again to go to the Joy City mall where there is a large ferris wheel on top of the building.
Here is a bird’s eye view of the intersection below and the elevated walkway around it.
There is an old neighborhood next to the mall that is being demolished. This sometimes takes years because the residents refuse to leave and try to negotiate better compensation for the loss of their homes.
The missing roofs give you a peek inside.
