There’s plenty of beer

This is actually an Iranian Tea Stirrer Candy. I’d say rock sugar on a stick.

The Christmas Market is packed at night. One can barely get through the throngs of zombie-shoppers. This is no Romero allegory…since this is outdoors and the people are bundled up like mummies in the cold. There’s no reason to write a description here, and less of one to connect it to Ancient Ecyptian mummies but I just wanted to include a few lines I read that would probably be difficult to relate to Bath under any situation. “Modern advances, however, have strained this delicate balance. Many of the slow-moving creatures are crushed each year on the superhighways that surround Cairo….
“Most conservation groups, however, stress that Egyptians should focus on preserving the mummies that still remain, though recent efforts to increase their numbers by breeding them in captivity have failed, since mummies are dead and therefore cannot reproduce.”

061203.Bath, Christmas Fair Around the Abbey

The market is packed. Busses bring folks in from around the area. The large coaches are decorated and parked everywhere.

I heard it was the second largest Christmas Fair in England, and runs for two weeks. It stretches from Kingston Sq (the former cloisters) to the Abbey Green and down several streets, as well as being in the Guildhall. It’s really a large fair and I hope I can get back there. There didn’t seem to be too much interesting items on display, mostly candles and other Christmas junk but there were a few good free samples. I went for the food and bought a “Grand Marnier crepe” out of curiosity. They put the alcohol in at the end so it didn’t evaporate.
