Isfahan bazaar and Iranian production
• Isfahan bazaar and Iranian production
Today I will discuss the Isfahan bazaar where you can walk for hours through the shops, which sell samovars, rugs, dishes, spices, dried fruit, fabrics, and even the whole bunch. Here you can watch craftsmen at work that whole day long something weld, cut, paint, emboss and encrusted. For example, it is possible for a few minutes to examine the process of converting dirty copper piece (or something there) in neat or saucepan samovar. And it is a real production, not a tourist show. Goods that are produced directly in the market, buying mostly locals.
Isfahan Bazaar - one of the oldest and largest bazaar in the Middle East.
at the entrance to the bazaar always sits a group of men who are waiting for something. Apparently, their wives.
Before you go to the market, we went to the bank to change money. But the bank advised us to go out and change money with it - so the course profitable. Right suspicious people standing in front of the bank. In their hands they rewound tape calculators and pack newly printed money. We go to him.
And the truth is, if the bank for $ 100 we would have 2, 4 million reais, on the street, we exchanged the same amount of 3, 5 million.
