We walked through a number of bustling markets in Iran. Lots of people and great variety in the goods and services offered. Often sellers of a particular item—like pounded copper or gold jewelry or kitchen equipment or spices—would be in the same market location.
shrine of Imam Reza, the eighth imam of the Shi'a Muslims. He is the only one buried in Iran. Lots of trinkets and a profusion of black fabrics.
artists and artisans practicing traditional crafts in Esfahan's market. I’m going to devote a post to them later on. Here I want you to admire the various food shops: strawberries brought into the market in a wheelbarrow, greens and spices, and beautiful vegetables.
