Greenwich Market

Yesterday I wore my newest earrings for the first time:

I bought them at the market in Greenwich, from a Tibetan man called Yishi who, I found out, left Tibet over a decade ago and hasn't been home since. He told me about the different areas of Tibet and the different landscapes - it sounds beautiful.


Some photos from the rest of Greenwich market:

I would have liked to favorite on flickr the album - that I did not get so net, but it is "private" and I could not.

I am happy you like the earing! and good souvenirs from Greenwich to you

Hi Rachel, take a look at Michael Palin's Himalaya series on DVD for some wonderful information about the Tibetan people. Great psot.

Wow I like those earring! Well of course you have to if you bought them, so sorry, but I like unique stuff like that too, and the market looks really cool and fun!

They are so pretty. One of my favorite colors. I love all that little glass stuff.

I am a chicken, and have never pierced my ears. Just the thought of someone coming at me with a sticky thing hurts. But are there times when I see earrings like the ones you bought that make me want to say, "Pour some wine down my throat and stick me!"

Nice earrings, but I haven't tried that type of earrings yet :-) You have a nice cool market, a lot of stuff to buy from
