Wow! I thought I answered this, Victor! @victorbz I am so sorry and I appreciated it when you first posted it, read it, and upvoted/reposted and I thought I left a comment a day later, but, we all post in different places, so ooops!

My mother was born into a neighborhood that had very similar looks, old men playing checkers, chess and backgammon or other games of the like. It was such a peaceful existence, wiling away the hours in the company of one another, solving the problems of the world.

I love asking the vendors if I can take pictures in their store. Most love it, and always ask what you are going to do with their pictures. It the guy with the pushcart a food guy, with his cooking apparatus on there or transporting something? High and tight seems the haircut of the day at the barbershop!

Splendid shots of a wonderfully, magical place! Thank you so much, Victor! My apologies for skipping yours!

#MarketFriday has evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but, it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact of what is normal for where you live? These are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I can only hope this to be true.

Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:

Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!

  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost?
  3. Post the picture(s) Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post #hive-196308 (this is not required, but appreciated)
    5. Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it
  5. Following me and reblogging the post so more see it would be appreciated !! Not a rule, just appreciated, more vision for more views on your posts!
    7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post. If you don't and someone reads it, there is nothing to tie #MarketFriday to that post.
  6. Please only one post each week. Believe it not, I run out of voting power if you put in many more than that.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!
