This city is incredible. Reminds me of Old Delhi, Venice and a few other places all mixed up, although it is very much its own thing. It seems much more vibrant than Old Delhi, much less a frozen museum than Venice. This variety and quality of commerce on the street is staggering. The architecture is a fantastic mix of old and new(er), much of it crumbling in a very romantic way. The city also has a kind of miniature scale about everything that I find very appealing. I’ve just been walking and walking (and eating).
