    ... air conditioned I think) but not many people on buses either. My guide (whose name is Serdar, by the way) tells me everyone drives to work - but where are the car parks (underground?)

The women with strong tribal connections tend to wear long patterned dresses in colours that are associated with various tribes. They also wear a stylish turban like head covering.
