Main Market, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia

“If you are allergic to scenic lakesides and love dusty action, visit the large and lively main market. It’s busiest on Saturday. Getting lost is half the fun. The delightful agelgil are no longer sold in the market; they’re mostly sold by the makers near the tourist office. Some souvenir shops sell them, but they buy from the makers too.”
