Old City Fun ;)

Today we ventured out to the old part of the city.... First Stop... The Spice Market...
We took auto rickshaws to the metro, took the metro train, then took cycle rickshaws to the spice market. It's a fun place to go. Everyone in hustling and bustling all around - it's fun!
There are a lot of fun people in this market :)
This guy had a good smile :)
Next stop was the Friday M0sque. It's the largest M0sque in our country. It's actually one of the only M0sques that women can actually enter.
We all went up to the top of the Mineret... a LOT of stairs :) It's a lot of fun and you get a great view of the old part of the city!
More to come .... :)

How fun! Aashini didn't look too happy in that pic of you and Adam. It looks like a fun day. I wish we had a spice market.

These are awesome! Aashini looks a bit frustrated- ha! Don't they always seem to make funny faces when the camera comes out?! Looks like you guys are having a blast! I can't wait to see more adventures!

Just throw your parents in there- take em straight to the heart of old city. I think that mosque was one of my fave places in the city.

Where will you go next?

Climbing the minaret was one of my favorite things we did while there. Glad you took your parents.

aashini looks cold! is her head covered because of the weather, or because of mosque rules, or both?

SouthAsiaRocks said...

Her head is covered because it's cool out and if we don't have it covered, other parents will lecture us :)

Erin G said...

so that's a universal trend then. :)

That's so cool! Did you sneeze all the way through the spice market? What did your parents think?
