Today i visited the Spice Souk in the old-time commercial heart of Dubai called, Deira. Wandering through the narrow alleyways of this very old market is a fascinating journey into the world of color and aroma. Every stall has mounds of different kinds of spices including traditional medicinal products, incense and even rose petals. This is a no frills attached kind of a place and is starkly different from the Dubai of today but totally worth a visit.
