ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER "U"


The letter U is for the UNIQUE UZBEKISTAN outdoor market changing room. A year ago March I visited the country of Uzbekistan and loved their open air markets. I found this type of changing room a bit intimidating. One could buy anything from Underwear to furniture for very little cost.
For more pictures of that trip please go back to my archives 2006.
Be sure to click on the picture to see all the detail.

comme toi, j'aime beaucoup ces march├ęs ouvert. rien que pour la promenade et pour rencontrer des gens

Like you, I love these markets open. Just to walk and to meet people

Hi Sue!
A long journey from your home to Uzbekistan - in many ways, I think.
But the totally different countries have us most to think "things" .
I wish you both health and happiness!

What an adventure that must have been to visit there!

RuneE said...

It would be easy to try on shoes, but I don't know if I would have cared for trying on anything else out there - except perhaps gloves.

Colourful.l

There are lots of places like that in my city too. Like you said one can buy anything there for very little cost. But most of the things are of bad quality.

I've really missed checking out your blog for a long time.

Hope you're enjoying that new house! ;)

The facial expression of the lady on the left holding up the curtain is priceless. She is seeing it all and can hardly keep from laughing.

Excellent.

hpy said...

Trying on something like Underwear, maybe?

Hilary said...

Those faces are wonderful! The poor woman is hidden well enough, with merchandise packed in behind her, but she's being watched so closely from either side. Hopefully they're her friends and have just been asked "What do you think?"

That must have been an exciting trip.

Happy ABC Wednesday.

It looks a mite chilly there, too. The dressing room is a challenge for sure!

Irene said...

Wow, what a great and interesting photo!!! And funny!

Laurie said...

Great market scene. Lots of bright colors.

bonnie said...

I like how the ladies holding up the blanket screen are staring at the person trying on clothes. So much for privacy.

jel said...

Lilli & Nevada said...

Oh that is a bit unique I would feel intimidated as well.
