Expansive area with a lot of steps. Fly by night merchants had junky merchandise spread on sheets blocking our way. They must have gotten a warning because all of a sudden they wrapped up their sheets and went running into the hills!
Amazing shopping experience.
Very busy. Lots of things to see and do and buy.
Beware of pick pockets.
