... himself Emperor and changed his name) which was turned into a museum filled with less than interesting artifacts, headed to a coffee factory, the meat market where they butcher camels and hawks hover on the rooftop waiting for scraps, walked around the perimeter to see the 5 gates and some other markets in between.
