  • You must have seen absolutely the Souk, when it comes close to passing. When I was there, there were virtually no tourists. It was very authentic and you get a great look at the weekly market. There are all sorts of stuff offered. Alive are sold by rabbit about chickens, pigeons, other birds in different colors, goats and calves. It's really exciting to see how the sellers bring their goods to the man!
