From what I remember it was incredible. We had an apartment, but within 40 minutes of walking we had a little farm. Imagine acres and acres of land. All of it surrounded by perimeter of raspberry bushes. Except for the front of the farm, that's where we had vines and vines of blackberries that you could just come up to and pick whenever you wanted... Read More. In the middle of the farm we had all sorts of vegetables and tomatoes and strawberries and pretty much anything that can grow in the ground. On the right side we had apple, pears, plums and apricot trees. On the left grape vines that went all around the little area my grandfather built for us with swings. I remember swinging high high up to grab grapes from the "ceiling." We also had a little house and a pool that grandpa built and spend whole days through just splashing away. Food was cooked on the fire next to the house. I do believe it was a piece of heaven on earth.
Of course much probably have changed now. IF it's still the same, I recommend going to the bazaar. We used to walk through it and grandparents would buy us shishka bobs and corn and we would just munch on it while we shopped for a variety of items you can find while you're there. I would highly recommend NOT swimming in the canals if you come across one. They're pretty gross. The area is kind of high in criminal activity, though, so do be careful dear Mook. But I hope you find much interest while you're there. I miss it dearly.
