Lady's Dreams - Gold Souk in Tripolis.

Tripoli (Lebanese Arabic طرابلس Ṭrāblos or Ṭrēblos, locally Ṭrōblos, Standard Arabic transliterated Ṭarābulus) is the second-largest city in Lebanon.

In ancient times, this was the center of a Phoenician confederation which included Tyre, Sidon and Arados, hence the name Tripoli, from the Greek meaning "triple city". Later, it was controlled successively by the Persians, Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Mamelukes, and Ottomans. The Crusaders established the County of Tripoli there in the twelfth century.

Today it is the second-largest city, and second-largest port, in Lebanon, with approximately 500,000 inhabitants.[1] The city is divided between the El-Minya port district and the town of Tripoli proper.

A little too much glitter, don't know where to focus. :) Nicely done though the reflections bother me a bit.

A HQ documentary photo! I saw something like this in Istanbul; as a joke, now my thought flies to a technical market in Bucharest but with gaskets, screws, nuts and others…
