Fabric Souqs

I rode with Gill to the fabric souqs today.  She needed some fabric for a few shirts she was having made, and I thought it would be a good opportunity to take some pictures of the area since we are moving next month.  There are tons of shops selling all kinds of fabric.  Mixed in with the fabric shops are tailors and accessory shops selling things like buttons, zippers, and almost anything else you would need.  Most of the fabrics range from 15 to 30 riyals per meter.  Gill bought several meters of silk fabric and a few meters of linen for a total of 140 riyals.  I have no idea what that would cost at home, but Gill said it was a lot cheaper than New Zealand where she is from.
