We live in a magnificently cool city for history lovers, with the ancient city wall still surrounding the inner part of the city, protecting the neighborhood of one old dynasty's military headquarters. To be sure, there are a plenty of fancy pants shops in the downtown district.... zillion dollar diamonds, purses and perfumes. And then not more than a block or two walk away is this area that we love.
Here are a few shots, all from Matt.
By the way, our ecotour company is getting closer to launch day for the web site. We'll link to it once it's up and you'll be able to see many more fantastic shots of local geography, people, cultures there.
