As it's a Sunday the Chatuchak Weekend Market is a favorite place to go. With thousands of stalls don't expect to see it all in one day but do expect to purchase something you never even new existed before today. From a mouse to an elephant; Although it's so big even an elephant may be hard to find. One of the worlds great markets. Bartering, (always with a smile), is the name of the game as usual. B.
