Old souks of Tripoli

A nice postcard shows an old souk (Ancient tailor's souk) of Tripoli,the the second-largest city of Lebanon. Souk is similar to "Bazaar", which are both standing for "local markets" where lots of people sell goods, especially in (and originated from) the Muslim World. But the two terms have different too: Bazaar is permanent enclosed while souk is open-air. Many thanks to Mireille for this great card for my market theme collections!:)
