CDP Theme Day: Movement

Many of the narrow streets in Al Balad - the oldest section of Jeddah - are so narrow that they cannot accommodate vehicles.  This scene is from the textile souk, where there is constant activity moving bolts of fabric on man-powered flatbeds from one shop to another.

Today is the first of the month, which means it's theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers.  City Daily Photo is an online community of photo bloggers from around the world, sharing the wonders of their area of the world pictorially with others.  Each month there is a different theme that CDP members can participate in.  This month's theme is "Movement."  

Please visit the City Daily Photo portal to view other participants' entries for today's theme day of "Movement."

These carts are similar to what I used in a mailroom many years ago. At least I didn't have to push them outside in the hot sun.

I like the colours in the shot; it's just the right mix.

I assure you that Moroccan people can easily accommodate vehicles in those streets. :) Comparing to the old part of Tetouan or Fez they are really wide!

A unique post for movement. A nice solution to transporting goods in your old city.
