    ... as the waves battered the harbour walls, women bedecked in full dress, with headscarf and veil, sat chatting and holding plastic buckets, waiting for the fishermen to arrive. Normally, women would not be seen out in the early morning, and would certainly not be seen at the port - there is a stigma attached to women who visit the ports - they are rumoured to be women of loose morals who wait for the sailors. These women were wearing veils to disguise their faces and to ...

    apricots and ...

    ... a coffee. As I sat enjoying my coffee a little boy came up to me asking for a clementine. Up to this point in my trip, I had become quite accustomed to being asked for money by the little children in the street, but never chose to encourage a child to become a beggar so I had always resisted the sad faces off the children. But this time all the kid wanted was a clementine. Considering I had paid about $0.50 for 15 clementines, I had not problem providing the kid ...
